the alley is impossible
Impossibly narrow, impossibly long, and impossibly home, to hundreds.
Elephant is undaunted.
His used new bike has opened all options
It offers the impossible
Shows him what could be
He pauses, sizing up, weighing possibility
Are you sure you want to go that way? It’s pretty tight
He doesn’t respond, just nods, tilts his head slightly
And hits the pedal
I was picturing this in my head as I read it and read it again…
I chuckled at what this might look like…
What will happen next-I wonder?
The metaphor of something large taking on the challenge at hand with gusto is beautiful right now. We all have to keep our heads up and keep moving forward. Thank you for sharing such a strong poem!
“Impossibly narrow, impossibly long, and impossibly home, to hundreds.” This takes us right there. All your slices are building a beautiful tapestry of where you are for me. I like Elephant’s confidence unfazed by the environ.
