"with some help from our hearts" by Ben Read

The Little Deer by Frida Kahlo

"I'm gonna jump off the rail, and I'm gonna, like, fly over
the city and I'm gonna be like, 'What's up, Bill Gates?'"
the boy in the flat-brimmed baseball cap
says as he walks by.  What does he mean?
I wonder what can be taken
from a statement
such as that, and what
can be taken from a single moment.
Take this one.  What can be taken
from the scratch / of pencil on paper?

And so as we wonder,
we also wander
down the path
our imagination (with some help from our heart)
sets for us.
