My Ignorance

My ignorance is amazing.
I could fill this page, a book,
a shelf, this room, this house
with all I do not know.
My ignorance is enormous.
Isn't it astounding how it fits
so neatly in such a tiny brain
wedged inside this swollen head.

Acknowledgement of ignorance is the beginning of wisdom. Great lyrical insight.

With all...you meant, right? Lovely last line.

Yes, E. I did. Thanks.
