The Obstacle



Here is the obstacle:
are you clever enough
to bypass it
without violating any edicts,
by imagining a way
around, over, under, or through
that no one can fault you for,
thus, winning twice?
You won't always do it,
there are times when you can't.
But every time you do,
the sun lands in your hair
and you know what living is,
know that you were made for it.
