The Pullman

a man gets drunk then

a man drinks coffee

and sits and draws plans

for a fantastical house with which

he hopes to expand the mind

of all humanity.

 

it is to be his home.

 

while living there

he will be expecting visitors.

 

they will enter

full of wonder at

illumined glass iridescent in the roof,

curved beams, a railroad train rocking

on the water in the window

all of a mountain

yet he shall remain calm

for this man knows the possible

and the impossible simply

are a matter of opinion

 

and to think

we do not all have wings

is at heart

foolish.
