We need room.
We need space to stretch.
We need time to consider.
Flashes of inspiration are well and good,

Anything but a ball cap? Because you don’t play ball,
and I don’t believe in capping potential.

snow dusted trees, like brushes,
suspended half way between reality
in a magic mirror of spring.
