To fail. To come to naught.

Naught, as in zero. A round figure,

an enclosed absence.

A course-correction. A test

of viability. Via

as in viaduct. As in

a long, elevated roadway, a bridge

composed of several small spans

for crossing a valley (valley,

an elongated depression, a hollow

between uplands, especially one

following the course of a stream).

Most commonly, an overpass.

A flyover. The states

in the middle (Idaho,

the Dakotas).

Just passing through.
