Poem - Even Less

Life can be heavily structured with few chances for harm. It can also be lived in a way that allows new inputs that shake personal realities. “Even Less” is a poem about the latter.

Even Less

The more I learned the less I knew
what came before was tossed aside
as the new took its place

tidy boxes were too small
to contain the sum of all
with a request to remain inside

this rabbit hole has no end
spiraling down to further depths
spinning out to take in the world

the clock asks to be reset
it’s too late for that request
the note is struck for all to hear

the path back to the beginning
where life once was before this time
is now lost in the adventures found

perhaps this was for the best
telling myself as worlds collide
that I learned more to know even less.
