Tall Tales

Reading freely
though I have my favorite genres
I read soup can labels
if left in a kitchen without a book.

How we love stories
campfire tales, books
Internet blips
gossip over the backyard fence.
We love hearing and talking
about other people’s lives
always assuming they
are more interesting
than our own.

Yet we are masters
of our own tales
creating our stories
by the decisions we make.

Does your story end
happily-ever-after?
It really is up to you.
