Empty: Master, who will I become?

Absolute, you will unendingly be!

To empty I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like shallow
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using hollow

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

they're uniformly vacant.
Neither full nor broad!

A drain, exhaust or drainage.

Can I cede a poesy, published so crowds might see
Terse defining overviews, broadly imparting, and oh but divulged free?
Vacant or hollow look all too absolute. But is casting?
Discharge, blank? - or evacuate, emptying? Damn! I deserted fasting!
I ponder emptiness and therefore miserable, but broadly ought I
- found meanings so - sentences written with computers spry?

So smart that dude from Cape Junken.
