the war between the states

there is something
to the way it all seems like nothing
it makes nothing
and makes something
it’s not unlike the way
an argument starts
around something insignificant
until it reaches a deeper meaning
that can’t be seen from the surface
a weight that’s much too heavy
for either of us to pick up
and show each other
what it looks like
so it sits there
in the dark
meaning so much
but saying so little
