look, i don’t know …

look, i don’t know if it’s
ever occurred to you
to be completely spontaneous and
upend all your normal habits of being
simply because inspiration has
got you firmly between its teeth —
or because someone else finds
themselves in its grip —
however, i think it’s about time
even you chased your hat up a tree
never minding the thoughts of
your neighbors (who probably have no imaginations anyway)
oughtn’t you to at least give it a try?
unusual things could break out all over
and i am staunchly in favor of the experiment
now, when fancy strikes you, grab it and
don’t look back to safety. go on —
i dare you.
