Little Boxes

A full life can't be contained

This month’s poem addresses “the boxes” that we often find ourselves trapped inside but that really don’t fit the fullness of our lives. Eileen Rosensteel, a Madison-area poet, is passionate about improving body image and acceptance for everyone. Her writing focuses on the body, reinterpreting fairy tales and finding the magic in everyday life. She is also a massage therapist, speaker and performer. — Fabu

Little Boxes

Little boxes lined up neatly

Each one labeled clearly

For convenience and efficiency

All so very organized

But my life doesn’t fit in those boxes,

It spills over the sides

Laughs at the labels

And claims a space of its own.

Adult poets are invited to submit poems of twenty lines or less to fabu@artistfabu.com for possible publication in Madison Magazine. fabu@artistfabu.com
