From the inside

A system of boxes. A stretch

and measure for doing this one

thing. Live. Then all the other

fake measures; the misleading

ones that totter along to the

same end with variant degrees

 

of pain.

 

Thereís a space by the exceptional

and itís vacant. I donít know

which box Iíll jump into next.

 

The boxes.

I keep avoiding them. Though

Iím sitting in one: the one that

keeps avoiding, fighting for that

exceptional space that is just a

box

 

ultimately

and nothing more.

 

Nothing exceptional.

Neither vacant nor spacious

Where is the way out?
