old poem: Simplicity

even before
i start
i am taking things
away

others
add details
here
and there

and yet
i endeavor
to leave things
out

i always wonder
how much can you say
without saying
anything at all

would silences
that are
carefully deployed
suffice

for if i
were to fill
every available
gap

there would be
no room here
at all
for you
