J. Roycroft

The Possibilities


He tries to fit a small Lego
piece into some Duplo, like
a toy dog trying to screw

a great Dane, and all of the
hilarity that ensues. Once
the laughter stops and the tears

are dried, I take this from
it: we are poorer for our
laughter, for in his world,

everything is possibility.
