Nothing Pursues Something

Half-empty coffee cup

Hoping to find something

Peering down, never up

Searching darkened nothing


“Seinfeld” gathers awards

Endless shows with nothing

Jerry’s name on billboards

He’s caught on to something


Writing with empty words

Dreams filling with something

Missing all the keywords

Amounting to nothing


Scanning digital files

Words lost, dreading nothing

Writer facing trials

Mining life for something


Photo on dusty perch

Triggers newfound something

Memories begin search

Looking beyond nothing


Nothing pursues something

Something subdues nothing

The American sitcom “Seinfeld” entertained viewers for nine years with the creative humor of comedian Jerry Seinfeld.  With a setting in New York City, the cast featured regulars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, and Michael Richards.  The success of the show has often been referenced to a “show about nothing.”

Here is a short clip from the show, featuring Jerry Seinfeld with guest star Brad Garrett.  The scene is titled “You barely know your car.”
