boxes

when was the last time you had a box delivered to you?

wouldn’t you prefer to expand your definition of boxes?

what about calling it a box of bread? banana flesh in a curved box?

didn’t you break a cracker in half and call it a box?

lacerations make a box bleed? could you pass that box of ink,

to sign this box? at dinner in low light and a whisper:

weren’t cows your favorite boxes, with the leather hide and

the raw gentle mooing sound they make? remember the boxes burnt,

bounced, liquified, defied? will you defy boxes with me?

the box of learning how to swim under water? the box of severing

sterile relationships? overcoming the box you are addicted to?

what happens when you open a box that you are addicted to?
