empty spaces

i like empty spaces because
they swell within the realm
of possibility

i think

that is why i like the desert so much
kind of fuller there

like anything is possible
and yet so calm

i love the empty streets
just after a rain has come

or when you walk home real late
and it is like everyone


i love my empty bed
just after the sheets are washed

because it is so cold
and so warm with memory

a kind of show-down
between dream

and something other than
