I touch the moment by its hectic word,
without imitation, from bursts and bursts
I come in unintentionally.
By name, by function by friendship
I invent this place;
I don’t have gifts of sky or lantern,
I don’t fathom an exit.
Entities and noise musically erase my eyes,
a cold sheet of water, no more days
possessions by an instant.
I intend to own an ocean
wet by the iron that hurts
a depth of gunfire.
I live by tendencies, the tender spots
placing what’s left of me on this bench
I sit: time begins
Why assert when doubt freely listens in
don’t ask why I fell into this stateless love
imagine that I have just begun.
