Outside of the Box
You tell me I should think
outside of the box but really
you just want me to climb into yours
and think the same way you do.
I have been outside the box,
mine, yours, everyones.
It’s a nice place to visit but
I haven’t perfected living there yet.
But I will, one day.
So don’t talk to me of boxes in vague
exhortations to creativity.
All you’ve done is paint some interesting pictures
on the walls of your box
mental murals – trompe l’oeil candy.
