Swatting Flies - July 10, 2022

I don’t like killing curiosity

with the back of a hand


I think “shoo” is enough

to wave at their wings

let them fly off

explore places

see things

I never would


for every idea I let go

which returns

flitting with excitement

could become the poem


that replaces the one

smashed on paper

which had no business

being there
