Permanence/Desire

Permanence will be the undoing of us all
There is more to us

Let it go
You are a crystal set radio receiver
Running with words of every distinction
In a swarm of foreign vernaculars
Crackling phosphorescent liquid
Flickers on tips of semi conductors
Tubes of heated atmosphere
Snap and sputter resistance of naked air

All those ideas turning off and on in uneven gyrations

More beauty in outrageous actions
Then in contrite obligations
Let them go
We few
We worshipful few
Who hail at the feet this mighty artifice
Conflagration
Desire
A ticking hum
Current on wire
Invite you
Let it go

(Lips poised at microphone’s edge,
Wireless transmission begins, 3-2-1)
