The Murder of Possibility

19 Mar

Freedom, freedom,

The promise of something

we’ve never known

A promise from the quadrangle

of possibility unknown

The impossibility is as clear

as the image in the mirror

glanced on & maybe even

studied in a moments ..

what we call a lifetime

While we still are instruments

to call it so,

instruments of possibility

Hope unknown.

A love affair of promise and possibility,

this tragic, impossible durability

as plain as the 11 year old’s

eyes, asking  who speaks back

and from where —

what authority unknown

and all the birds’ voices

we never really heard

Retreating so.
