Once long ago, a certain centipede
Was asked just how he managed legs and feet —
So many of them! — walking, sure, would need
Coordination; how then, did he meet
The need? He thought long, hard, and then, at last
Tried walking and, in thinking, walking failed.
‘Tis this I fear when I regard, aghast,
The question of creation. I have paled
In fear of such result, but since I seek
My inspiration from my crazy friends,
Who dare me just as you have, I will speak
A bit on how it happens. Nothing lends
A luster to one’s work like challenges
Impossible or otherwise, I says!

    Fantastic imagery, Kate! And just as I imaged: short, succinct, and right on the mark. Seriously, fantastic piece!
