You Can Be Anything – A Poem


You can do anything

while half-asleep

You can:

speak an idiom that turns

into a ripe mango on your tongue

You can:

wear your red shirt inside-out


the fear of death

You can:

tilt your head sideways and

find hulking dragons hiding

in mint-green paisley


can be anything

in the inch between waking and slumber, so-


do you act so powerless?

What do you think?
