Nothing 5



Nothing is so much that it couldn't be more.
Nothing is so little that it couldn't be less.
Nothing is infinite, and contains everything.
Nothing is infinitesimal, and can only hold hope.
Better to use nothing to answer What's wrong?
than What's for dinner?
Better to walk as nothing through nothing,
wanting for nothing, lacking nothing, needing nothing,
than to sorrow over the illusions that come to torment
the alignment of emptinesses that believes it lives.
You are nothing twisted and stacked in improbable ways.
Someday you'll disperse, nothing into nothing,
and nothing will ever be the same again.
