The Obscure Voice

The staccato of life
can’t hear this obscure voice
born from a different pitch.
It directs me into its path—
where ideas pop up
like Jack-in-the-box.
Innovation cleans up
the fairy tale mess
poured from broken teapots,
as the prefabricated walls
of expectations
come tumbling down.
