un-imping the ossibles

that tiny 
is at it again, 
taking what is 
and turning it to dust. stealing 
what is 
and dressing it in muss. 

take all these minuses 
and gift ourselves the poss, 
knowing anything is 
possible if we can (s)imply 


written for today’s Quadrille over at dVerse. I’m hosting. Come play!
