The Best Laid Plan

best laid plan —
a monument of creativity
and hope —
is placed delicately
on the quicksand
we call life.

The breeze of
teases the joints
of your dollhouse.

Will it survive?
That’s not the question.
The question is:
What will you make
when it crumbles?
Will it be better
or will it stoop
in resignation
and defeat?
