Part 16 of the 26-part series called "Napowrimo 2019"

A wish is a blank check, that is,
a wish is a blank piece of paper.
You may want something so bad it hurts, but
a wish will only ask for a doorway.
In heaven, can you see the stars?
A wish might sound like a whistle, to god.
Turn around. Always look behind you for
a wish that could unravel your knitting.
Alone in a small room, no takeout on the table:
a wish watches television on the dirty blankets.
A wish is a wish is a wish, as it goes.
A wish lives alone. It has no need of you.
