Another Instant

So you drift in your spirit world
or wherever it is you dream
and everything is
*****rational
*****except your pulse
whichisgoinglikemad
in fact you are wondering if
dyingrightnowisagoodthing
in fact
ntiohng is lnokoig rhgit

But you are standing
*****right here
*****right now
on hard concrete
with a real breeze lifting your scarf
and traffic going by
and you stand
with a blank
look on your face
while
person number one in your life right now
waits for you to say
*****something
***** anything
and you know it’s
*****everything
And everything
*****is hanging
*****on the next instant

and you open your lips
and push the air out through your larynx
and that’s it

*****and you wait
