Boxes

Boxes boxes boxes

Containers

Holders of

Confiners of

Things

Of objects

Of intangibles

If we let them

Vessels

Fences

Prisons and corrals

Boxes

Boxes

Boxes all

Into them

We fall

Or a re ridden

Sometimes

Locked

Away

Sometimes hidden

Sometimes

Penned

In deceptive

Pastoral boxes

Other times

Quite literal

Dungeons

Confined

Either way

Whether consciously

Or otherwise

Locked

In unlocked boxes

Outwitted

Dumbed down

And self confined

Not realizing

There is

Intrinsically more space

More possibilities

More progress possible

Outside

The boxes

That physics itself

Tells us

There is less

Inside the box

Than out

That boxes

By their very nature

Confine

and stifle

Growth

That to search

For the new

Inside

The old box

Is patently

Ridiculous

Dont just think

Outside the box

Live there.

Live there

Or admit

To ceasing

To grow

Resigned

To a state

Of stagnation.
