"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

IT’S MY NEGATIVE SPACE

IT’S  MY  NEGATIVE  SPACE        MINE

Will they have an exhibit of my   ephemera?

Not a hushed cloister like Patti Smith’s  filled

with slippers, Rimbaud’s litter, and her dad’s

china cup    No    Mine will be empty    filled with

suffering   calamity   loneliness   beauty            and ghosts   fighting

 

Many will exclaim:    She’s having us on 

 

But there you will   thoroughly find    your own banished    treasures

Perhaps a 5 star restaurant    a motherlode of guilt   and a rummaging rat or 2
