Now Just Imagine...

If you went to your mailbox
and a unicorn leaped out

or if you went to your car
and it turned into a whale

or if you opened your door
and Saturn's out there

or if you looked in a mirror
and saw a flower garden

or if you asked me
what this poem means

and I told you it was
all about growing old.
