in real life the rules flex.
necessity is invention’s supporting mother
creativity (the father) having moved on …
bamboo erupts breaking bitumen
paperbarks cleave rock in gorges
time drips water carves canyons
water eats rock
hollow cave’s obverse
is solid stalactites
(rock born of water )
to forge steel
ideas scratched on paper
defeat scissors or swords
may even endure
