Capacity 2



You need to be larger than you are,
they say.  Need more room inside
to take more in.  If you can't
be as big as the world,
be as big as you can.  Bigger.
If you haven't burst, there's still hope.
Every minute there is more of everything,
so there's got to be more of you—
there's just got to!
What is outside must be consumed.
Imagine how much bigger you could get,
how much more you could hold.
Or you can go small.
But there's no future in that at all.
