NEITHER HERE NOR THERE

by Martin Maloney


If you are neither here nor there
you must be nowhere.
You can't be somewhere, since
somewhere is part of everywhere
which is both there and here;
and as you are neither there nor here
you cannot be somewhere.
But neither can you be nowhere
since you must always be somewhere
and somewhere between here and there.
But if you are neither here nor there
but somewhere, then somewhere must be nowhere
between here and there;
Thus, somewhere must be everywhere
between here and there; and nowhere
Is between here and there, so
somewhere is everywhere and nowhere
But that's neither here nor there
