Alchemy (a poem by Chris Kirkpatrick)

If I could
Condense the world
Into a thimble

Or reduce
All problems
Down to one

(Or less)
With a tidy
Solution
 
With but a simple
Wave of my
Hand
 
I’d believe
In the power
Of man
 
And still manage
To smile
(Awkwardly)
In the mirror.
 
 
Chris Kirkpatrick is the author of two books of poetry, Learning to See from the Blind and Mixed Metaphors.
