	Out of a nutshell

	by Ani Boghossian

	Infinity it is
	And I have nothing
	Even inspirations that untie
	To flutter
	Between fireflies and lampposts
	Sidewalks and dim clouds
	Trees and empty bottles
	Drift into air
	So that I can
	And while I hold my breath
	I can write symphonies in motion.
	But Lord,
	I could be bounded in a nutshell
	And count myself king
	But instead I
	Wash the feet of existence
	And indulge
	My owning of nothing in anything at all.
	I emerge out of nutshells
	Time after time
	To see colors
	Different in each light
	(While light creates color,
	It has none itself...)
	And I think
	that thoughts don't belong to me
	And I am but a king
	In a nutshell that is in a nutshell
	On a nut-tree
	In dark soil
	Between earth and sky,
	In infinities...
