If Wishes Were


i would be you,

if wishes were choices
i would choose one
to roar my voices,


if wishes were dreams
i would,

if wishes were words
i speak, would worth
to do my math,

if wishes were love
i would love,

if wishes were my integrity
i would live with dignity
and stay with mine suiting,

if wishes were death
i would die a happy man,

if wishes were wings
that walk, or rings
that clock, i would

if wishes were distance
i would follow, further

if wishes were many
i would envy
that which i follow,

if wishes were what if
i would wish for how if,

if wishes were soils
over the corn fields
i would cultivate and seed,

if wishes were poems
i would write to recite,

if wishes were green
i would need a bean
and lily to feed,

if wishes were wishes
i would wish in pieces,

if wishes were further
i would foot nearer
and wish me one.
