on success

as bradbury said,
if you’re a poet,
a pile of horse manure
can only mean flowers.

let the pile of failures
grow beneath your feet

know that
given enough time,
flowers (and perhaps
delicious mushrooms)
will also appear

it is easy
to see success
to smell the flowers
and forget
all the manure
that made it happen.
