Against Hestitation

If you stare at it long enough
the mountain becomes unclimbable.

Tally it up. How much time have you spent
waiting for the soup to cool?
Icicles hang from January gutters
only as long as they can. Fingers pause
above piano keys for the chord
that will not form. Slam them down
I say. Make music of what you can.- Charles Rafferty -
