Negation

Negation

–mickey morgan

If you took away

My negative space

Where would I be?

If I had no negative space

I would fill everywhere,

Shapeless,

Without shape

Because with shape

Would mean negative space

Forming.

You would be taking away my world

And leaving me with me;

I would be

All form

All content.

All substance

No air to design in.
