“Flashing There” — New Poem March 2018

"Flashing There"

Crossing the street
Pedestrians and strangers 
People having purposes
Stacked beer kegs
The delivery truck unloads 
Walking into sunrise 
On a cobblestone road 
A pigeon's wings flap
The sound explodes 
In my consciousness 
Everything lost is now known 
Stopping to write a poem
Tracing where the bird has flown
Like a worm through the hole
These words are now shown
Pulling thread filling the gap
These moments as fast as a flash 
I'm not using a capo
Unless I want what's new to be old
Someone's story that has been told
When it's we who have really grown
Into something built to last 
In the corner the evidence moans
Give it an hour to be exposed 
In the darkroom taken with a flash
Oh there it is now again what a memory
