                                                                             photo of United States from

                                                                             outer space in trash

                                                                             green fire held to

                                                                             everything as

                                                                             everyone

                                                               whirls into abs-

                                                               tr-

                                                               action

                                                               a moment with the
                                           crystal and the weight of the house is released
                                                we hold fast
                                                we hold one another
                                                we hold to the vigor of the street

                                                     pain of picked flower our frame
                                                     reckless but never monochrome

                                                     everything the speed and

                                                     tension of eloping

                                                               saunter past

                                                                 barricades

                                                                 waking not

                                                                 sleeping to

                                                                        dream
