What if we all had purple or green or red hair
and anyone with brown hair was considered abnormal?
What if we all rode flying bats to and from work
but flying cats were just for sport or play?
What if rain ran down in sparkling glitter
and the sun came to dry it up, so that it all glittered up back into the sky?
What if people rode tornados like bucking broncos
and there were rodeos held to see who could stay on the longest?
What if there were cameras that could capture
a person’s truthfulness in a photograph, so no one could lie?
What if animals could talk and liked to debate politics
more than humans ever did?
What if one day I floated away on a huge gust of wind
and found myself on the other side of the world?
What if a man came to me and professed undying love,
but then promptly died in my arms after fighting off a savage gorilla?
What if the world was full of the impossible,
and lovers and peacemakers were celebrated more than anyone else?
