Joy in Boundaries

Someone once asked why I added these stripes 
To the corners of this painting.
 I could have just said I liked their look, 
But instead I got philosophical: 
“I’ve learned,” I said, 
“That I’m much more comfortable 
 Working within clear boundaries; 
That there’s a lot more freedom 
When my edges are defined — 
I don’t waste so much time 
Trying to figure out where they are.”
