No boundaries

 

I possess neither wings


nor the magician’s mischief


but, believe me, I can fly


and I can also be a landscape


of mirrors that name whatever moves

or has pretensions to be alive

 

On the wingspan of my desire

easy as the approach of any day

you can clearly remember


I can fly to any place

or moment fertile with memory


or create fresh ones without a single boundary

though our lives remain so pathetically prosaic

 

With informed hope


and resolve we must know


how to move forward to a landscape


where our dreams cannot be turned into nightmare

where our dreams are always in sight


where we must again


redden the blackest folds


of our memory and intent
