Empty Spaces

fill the empty spaces,
he said,
there is so much
you can do
in those empty spaces

and so i filled
the empty spaces
till, an atom
could not be squeezed
in, anywhere

he smiled
appreciatively
yet, his raised eyebrow
made me try and fit
another atom, somewhere

then
i exploded
into the empty spaces
i had driven out

atoms fitted there
seamlessly
endlessly

    this is really really nice..
    I actually read it 3-4 times..

    was reminded of charles bukowski

    “All our days are marked with unexpected affronts-some disastrous, others less so but the process is wearing and continuous. Attrition rules. Most give way empty spaces where people should be.”
