In machines and lashed water
there is a hand moving
in parks and unfettered scenery
coins spin blur dates and faces
numbers are punched holes
thick syrupy light comes pushing in
and will not be still
or move as light moves.

Once I had the light hard,
hard in my eyes, I used a device,
a device to deflect it,
what I could not name, I ignored
to give other things names,
I named what was around me, I used
a device, I used several devices,
I ate up the space, I thought I'd kept
somewhere, a clean departure, a vessel
waiting, once I had the light hard,
clean in my eyes, I held it with
my open, hills glowed at the edges
