The Kettle

Added on by Steven Casale.

Always, one.
Focus on one true thing
in the pool of millions.

That thing is yours.
Sometimes it will be shrouded
in sand and salt,
but other times it will glow,
like steam in the light.

And then it boils over.

Everything boils over
and demands that you touch it,
like some silly dog.

Now, you know it
because you've felt its fur—
soft and tangled.
This thing you chose,
it's yours now.
Just take it,
you did it.
