[I REMAIN AN OBJECT]

 

I remain an object

In a technological world

The house of creation all full of night

 

We stand in a doorway

It isn’t real

And some astral presence

lingers

 

Just out of frame

Waiting to explode    Inward

To occupy a human setting

With relentless energy

 

I read by the light of my soul

Conjured in flames

Through my love of this moment

 

Always this moment

The one that is happening

With roots Sprawling

A tangle of voices

 

So many other verses
To so many other poems

 

All the dreams I remember

End with a collision

The way a secret is revealed

With a terrible crash

Or else never at all
