AMBITIONS

(lift-loft)

 

 

to be what stays

on a carousel

or what is held in place

& revived by light

 

to be that escape

contained in frames

to rotate dull bars

into machinery

 

to be no music but

an instrument cranking

open a window

if that’s what it’s called

 

to be driven wholly into

the tunnel of the sentence

its common words

 

like winter

like snowfall

like water

 

to be

in spite of the original

whatever begins again

 

& then to fold

to clothe or unclothe again

 

to be as naked

as a motor

to be equal to

its exclamations

as an engine is

 

to be revving

in every direction

like a prayer

 

there is no building but

a body opening

a hand exploding

 

its signs suspended

in the air

in a bleached city


to go steering

the darkness

which is shaped

into the letters

to be read

to be a message

for us

 

let it be said

let an eruption go

 

not like

the volcano

but like

the prisoner

who has just lifted

a Camaro
