a space for everything puts everything in its place

there are spaces for art
concerned only for
where you’re at
and what you are

to the extent you adhere
with an ensuring buffer
your art will serve
as filler
for what is in there

if, however, you are of weight
you will butt up against
what is in there
and may diminish it

upon delivery
it will be detracted
this is not profitable

whereas
if having maintained its
conveyance
you may be referenced
and if shown useful
recycled
this is your purpose

you can’t assure the in
from the outside
there is no need of you there
you shall be shelved

persist
for your art is refuse as
bubblewrap in their box
