Poem: Cans & Cannots

April 13, 2018
I wrote this short, Gatsby-inspired piece a while ago.

Raise the glass
Here the tinkling ice
Why of course you can
Not even a might
You want it
Go get it
It’s not that easy
You stand in your own way
The world won’t let you
Society says nay
You reassess
All you can find is confusion
A shadow
A remnant
What did you once want
That now which you can’t recall
You don’t remember after all
