Creativity is greatly valued

Creativity is greatly valued
For his sharpness

His ability to look beyond
The surface  

And willingness to
Give it a shot

To break
Out of the box
The cubicle  

And jump
 
When the towers burnt  

Who knew
Box cutters
Had such power.

(Inspired partly by conversations with Danah Henriksen around a paper we are writing on the dark side of creativity and
this image. I should add this image may be painful viewing to some so please click with caution.)
