A refugee, I’ll be paroled in real time.

To pull the metal splinter from my palm
my father recited a story in a low voice.
I watched his lovely face and not the blade. . . .
A brenda is missing—where is she?
Summon the seeds & weeds, the desert whooshes. Phone the finch
with the crowded beak; a little pretenda . . .
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls; . . .
Give all to love;
Obey thy heart;
Friends, kindred, days, . . .

It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil . . .
The Goddess who created this passing world
Said Let there be lightbulbs & liquefaction
Life spilled out onto the street, colors whirled . . .
