Forget the framework

Working on my autobiographical statement for SU's School of Theology and Ministry application today this came up and out -

Start with a purge
Start with Freedom
Forget the trellis,
the framework, the
boundaries, the programs,
the outlines, the musts,
the rules and requirements,
the questions
and SPILL over.
Pour everywhere.

out, down, across
and dripping. Leaving
stains on the table,
the floor. Exhaust
yourself. Empty.
Make room.
Step back
survey the landscape.

Then get
out the pruning shears and the gloves,
the mop and the broom.
