Real things inside me he said.
You’ve gotten it all wrong.

I see you and hear you
and that is the beginning of a poem.

Not a circle but a ray
not a definition but a journey

flowering in scenes.
This composition is still all the time

coming into view.
The depth we might say.

I am seeing through you
like transistor songs

from a postcard beach town,
two loves caught in CinemaScope.

A movement inside movement
unlike the stars and flag.
