"There's not much doubt in any of our minds that no complete idea springs fully formed from our brow,
needing only a handshake and a signature on the contract to send it off into the world to make twenty-five billion dollars.
The germ of the idea grows slowly..." - Walt Kelly

The last best thing

hesitate for just a moment
and find yourself
slipping heels up
frost on the sidewalk,
a giant foggy mirror
blurred by nervous sweat
a hasty winged portrait

and your choice will be
to scramble hands and knees
flailing restless for traction
or to get comfortable
and make yourself an angel

Playing on my iTunes at this very moment:
The Mountain Goats, No Children
