Bright lights put me in a trance,
but it ain't house music
that makes me wanna dance.

i say nigga too much
You saved me, you should remember me.
The spring of the year; young men buying tickets for ferry boats.
Laughter, because the air is full of apple blossoms.
When I woke up, I realized I was capable of the same feeling.
I remember sounds like that from my childhood,
laughter for no cause, simply because the world is beautiful,
something like that.
Lugano. Tables under the apple trees.
Deckhands raising and lowering the colored flags.
And by the lake’s edge, a young man throws his hat into the water;
perhaps his sweethear has excepted him.
sounds or gestures like
a track laid down before the larger themes
and then unused, buried.
Island in the distance. My mother
holding out a plate of little cakes-
as far as I remembered, I changed
in no detail, the moment
vivid, intact, having never been
exposed to the light, so that I woke elated, at my age,
hungry for life, utterly confident-
By the tables, patches of new grass, the pale green
pierced into the dark existing ground.
Surely spring has returned to me, this time
not as a lover but messenger of death, yet
it is still spring, it is still ment tenderly.
