Up for debate

Trying to see things as they might be
instead of stuck in this formal reality.

we all try
don’t we,
try to
let our imaginations run free
windblown
and unchained by any boundary?

the difficulty, if I can call it that,
is
we are like a flat screen TV
with depth and with colour
but the remote only lets us see
what we want to see
and not what things might be.

I threw out my TV
years ago,
the remote is remote from me,

still trying to see things
as things might be,
rearranging my sight
to fix my own reality.
everything might be something else, sometimes we just have to look deeper.
