I was nearly made small
surrounded
hemmed in
by small thinking
midget musing
narrow knowledge
reactionary reason
inside-the-box
the cardboard box
lunch box
thinking

absence of thinking
nil
none
null set

my thoughts grew small
sympathetic response
to puny pundit
ready to retaliate

I tried to be small
to crawl into that place
of lower-level logic
sub-basement sentiments
tunnel ideation

that’s what they did
how they responded
what they understood
low–lower
base–baser
small–smaller
almost shut
closed mind

enter
arrow of light
spark of above wisdom
words spoken over me,

“Smallness is their distinctive
understood only by the puny.

Be BIG–bigger
big-hearted
big-minded
gi-normous

cast off smallness
every shred of stingy
faulty generosity
overlook wrongs
put asunder
live above
live in wonder.”

smallness
is the space inside us

greatness
takes the space beyond us
