When he was a kid

When he was a kid

he stretched his face

to the white sky

tongue out like when

the doctor puts a popsicle

stick on it.

And caught a snowflake

on his eye.

It was then he realized

that things often didn’t

go the way he expected

them to.

Later on he would look

back on that moment

after failed relationships

and wonder what would

have been different

if he had just tilted

his head back a little further
