Have you addressed the issue
from every angle? Etched the details
into your corneas and read them back
in varying tones? Painted an outline
on your skin and burned off layers
to simulate old age? Drawn conclusions
using far-flung clouds and watched
as the wind stretched and skewed
the answers into oblivion, deflecting
light onto the rolling landscape below
so you could trace the shifting outlines
in stones of different colors and textures
to create a picture you could scale down
to fit the largest wall you can find,
scouring the mural to find fault lines
you may have overlooked at the start?
Then sure, you can have another dessert.
And get me one, too, please.
