the wish

what if you could just tell them
show them
make them see everything your way
if only the right combination of words
could be spoken, it would ignite understanding
instantiate compassion
carve a path back to the place
where minds and hearts align
make them see the gaps in logic
and the shortness of sight
the wish
the wish
the tenuous road to a nonexistent destination
what if the deaf could hear
at the snap of your fingers
what if the wisest intervention




Dirty realism, grunge lit, creative confessions, spec fic, and assorted literary atrocities.
