Poem by Harry Ricciardi

amazing potential

the color
isn’t really
just the color
but you knew that
and all the efforts we make
are absolutely perfect
even when the directions they bring us
are startling and unexpected
we get to travel
we get to stand up on new legs
like dogs
from a distant universe
i’m trying right now
