I wish I was a tree.
I wish I was the sound the sea makes when no one is watching
I wish I was the pigeon you saw in sitting on a telephone line when you were seven and thought it was a hawk.
Oh my god!
I wish I was the graffiti tag on the water tower that makes you wonder,
"Man, how did anyone get up there?"
I wish I was the giant cardboard IPad in the apple store window that has a monitor for it's screen
I wish I was the Volkswagen that took The Grateful Dead to Woodstock
I wish I was the little Aztec girl with no shoes and big holes in my ears, holding a golden cup in my chubby hands
I wish I was the woman my parents want me to be
I wish I was the smartest person in the world so I wouldn't have to talk to anybody
I'll be damned!
I wish I was the wrinkled old Rastafarian woman that lives in the mountains with the sound of laughter in her ears
I wish I was the War that the humans all fought for reasons unknown
I wish I was the faceless entity in all your dreams
Great Caesars' Ghost!
I wish I was the horizon in Texas where everything is sand and road and majestic wind turbines turning slowly in the sky like the oceans
I wish I was the neon in a Chinese restaurants' sign
"Take out 24 hours"
I wish I was the homeless dog, head rested on master's lap like there is no where I'd rather be
I wish I was a poet
I wish I was the cameraman on every Travel channel show about food culture where you watch other guys eat everything
I wish I was that extra deep pothole that you can't just step over
I wish I was the first day of true Spring when you can smell it, like the winter is gone for good
I wish I was the last cold swig of tea that everyone swears is where all the sugar went
I wish I was the feeling people get from kissing
I wish I was the one true religion
