Emptiness Poems: 19 / 500

The Admirers Of The Little Box

Rating: 3.9

Sing little box

Don't let sleep overtake you
The world's awake within you

In your four-sided emptiness
We turn distance into nearness
Forgetfulness into memory

Don't let your nails come loose

For the very first time
We watch sights beyond this world
Through your keyhole

Turn your key in our mouths
Swallow words and numbers
Out of your song

Don't let your lid fly open
Your bottom drop

Sing little box

We turn distance into nearness Forgetfulness into memory" Great conceptualization and glowing tribute to the empty box. A well deserved classic poem of the day.
