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

About Scott Schoffstall

I'm a relatively new poet having started in earnest 11/2010. I have sought the authentic and am still on that quest. I've diverged from the norm yet always reached for the universal. My interests were always beyond the here and now. Beyond the taste, touch, smell, hear, see. Where the mind and the spirit transcend the physical. They say perception is reality. Is it? Are we truly all there is? View all posts by Scott Schoffstall
