going on in his soul

by Philip F De Pinto

he has total recall
of the nothing at all
going on in his soul.

hence, let it remain
vacuous and distilled.
let us not query ourselves
from whence or why or how

this emptiness came. let us leave it
rest on its merits.
and be content to leave it thus.
and let us not think to manufacture
wares or phrases for which to displace
the empty space.

of which he has total recall
of the nothing, nothing at all
going on in his soul.

Sometimes I feel that emptyness in my head, that nothingness. It catches me off guard as I believe, no doubt foolishly, that there might be something in there, maybe something even of value as there is in this poem.
