Box

Being,
inside
the box.
Being,
outside
the box.
Inside finite.
Outside
infinite.
Box
defined.
Defined as
knowledge.
Defined as
capacity.
What’s known
inside.
What’s unknown
outside.
Capacity to
fathom
inside.
Beyond
understanding
outside.
Box,
to infinite
scale.
Invisible
nonexistent.
Futile
in scope.
Like
guppies
in a bowl,
finite.
Knowledge
finite.
Capacity
limited.
No different.

    Thinking outside the box can bring such unexpected wonders to our lives.
