Less Is More

I thought it a bit overdone 

that Summer Exhibition of long ago.

Paintings were floor to ceiling

filling every wall,

even leaning up against the wall

so it became a show

where nothing was shown

in all its glory,

all was a daze 

a cacophony

shouting so loudly

it was impossible to contemplate 

the individual.

You need space for that,

space in between.

Too much and nothing is seen.
