On Being Nothing

Like a sponge,
I take on poetry, politics,
style, endless talk.
But inside I am nothing.
I am a little black box
with nothing inside.
Waiting to discover
the most cosmic
nothingness of all.
Eventually, we all evaporate,
return our shells to the world around us.
But always, always, the nothing remains.
It abides and fills up all over again
like the endless surroundings
of which it is made.
Nothing to nothing. And so to one.
