Emptiness allows entrance and exit

from a space, through a space,

into yet another emptiness.

Walls resist the outside,

hold the inside together,

to create a space. We are

our walls, tracing our lives

with soft fingers searching

for a space to cross through

into something other 

than here, like hermit crabs 

disparate for a new shell.
