instant karma


 

I asked for the power of a rhetorical question
a resounding yes returned
no possibly not
ah the beautiful uncertainty of doubt
so soundly reviled
had I but asked for identity to speak
had I but not spoken
thought a minute about the next seven generations
thought a minute
had I known
courage looks inside hearts
before diving into mirrors
to become someone else
had I not closed my eyes
before stepping on fertile ground
had I been anybody but I
