Pursuing the poetical, paradoxical, metaphorical, lyrical, artistical, majestical, and mystical.

Twirly Girl

I questioned a little girl,
 "Do you think
 in straight lines or circles?" 
With hardly a pause 
she answered,
  "Usually it comes
out all twirly."
I silently applauded
as an envious, aching tear 
dripped down my face. 
As a child, I didn’t know 
I had options for answers
other than A or B. 
But then again, 
nobody ever asked.
