(Found Poem)


I break my heart to fall in love,
to stand in relation to relation.

To be human...

I order the words to leave my world,
the paradigm proud and pleased.

Have books circulating names...

The world, the world, an old current working,
the inspiration behind the writing human.

Understand the spaces, manage them...

Such a current, frightening with fingertips,
Needn't spend time and energy.

And rely on the magic.
