Absolutes or Maybes

I think in absolute’s,

definite’s, and yeses

gliding in and out of surprises

and sensational possibilities.

This drives you bonkers

as if I am some Mary Poppins

ready to take us in flight

with a magic umbrella

erasing all the chaos

in the unforeseen future.

 

You think via analysis,

probabilities,

and maybe’s

which usually turn into no’s.

Despite it all we

sometimes

fly together

as you place

discomfort to one side

and allow

my spontaneous combustion

to be the wind

underneath us both.
