I asked for everything if it had something more,
something more than shape and form,
and I learned that way that nothing is empty–
everything is a box, a train, a boat
loaded with implications,
every foot that walked along a path
left a telegram written in the stone,
and clothes in the washing water
dripped out their whole existence…

—Pablo Neruda (Chile 1904-1973) from Fully Empowered
