"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

So That's Why It Takes So Long to Balance the Checkbook

The space inside my purse
Confounds the laws of physics.
I put receipts in as I spend
On various shopping visits,
But when I dump them out
To give them my attention,
They couldn't all have fit in there
Without a fifth dimension.

~ Tamary Shoemaker
(From a prompt at NaPoWriMo to write a poem of space.)
