if a bird loves a fish,
where would they live?
if a mermaid loves the wind,
where do they meet?
if you ask the wind questions
but he doesn’t have the answers,
who do you turn to?
if heaven isn’t quite sure either
and the Earth groans for a release
but can’t find the words,
how do they carry on a conversation?
if 2 + 2 has to equal 4
then what about the times in the dark
when spirits dance with shadows
and everyone puts on a new hat.
what about the times
where the past laid the yellow brick road
but you’re not sure if it’s a trap
or solid ground you’re standing on.
if there’s no kiddy pool, bumpers, or training wheels,
how do we learn to fly?
