Changes of State

We’re freezing

rain, you and I, running

down streets, quicksilvering

our way between blocks of time.

You won’t betray

me if you freeze faster; even stone will melt

and reform, re-imagined

as everything fabricates

its reality from nothing, ripping

fantasy from the headlines. We’re dreams woken

to being, you and I, we’re air that grows

frost on blades of grass, we’re

one frame in a mystery film, captured

for a spell. When our photos fade

and all we know releases

back into imagination’s wilds, we’ll play

with the unborn who pass

away into life, then return

in a simple change of state. We’ll meet

as trees, you and I, flowing

like rivers when no one is looking,

as our every wish condenses

into truth.
