poetry |ˈpōətrē; ˈpōitrē|
literary work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas by the use of distinctive style and rhythm; poems collectively or as a genre of literature : he is chiefly famous for his love poetry.

Let's change the variables. Let's adjust one 'yes' to 'no'. Let's see how many changes lead to Tom Waits days, to daisy sadness and small-town beauty pageants. Let's kick the dust up under our shoes and howl at the full moon in white cotton. We can run somewhere for no reason at all and fall in the wet grass. It can all be lighter and brighter and easier, maybe in a small villa with red floors and blue shutters where it's hot, hot all the time and flies buzz overhead like small machines, where we'll listen to far-off village children shrieking, where the glare from the ocean will blind our sleepy eyes if we dared peek out, where I'm always a poet and never just a me.
