The Shapes Of Spaces Between The Letters

  • I must exist here while dreaming of being anywhere but here. Somebody told me about green grass and now I want to go traveling to find it. Somebody else said stay here and I believed them. I left and came back three times; the grass was wheat colored out there and here it was knee-high and greener than shamrocks or leprechan hats. Sitting here, I sink beneath a weight of words so heavy I only have time enough left to grasp the contours of the shapes between the spaces of the letters. They are all mine and have merit in that they exist without calling too much attention to themselves. Spaces are like that most years. I will try to promote them better, prop them up like mirrors and make myself see that all that black ink is only for show.

the spaces between the words

the spaces between the words and letters often tells a better story.  What's left unsaid can be as powerful as what is actually written.
