Currents

If I could I would

Pour showers of water over the mirror
That holds all the light that was once mine
Wrest it clean of today, tomorrow and yesterday
Especially yesterday

Until the clouds emancipate to nothingness
Free from the weight of stones

If I could I would

Throw flames of a glorious orange into the forest
And watch gleefully as it burns
The forever trapped in trees
Crumbling in an instant

Until the animals come running out
Fear in their eyes, heat on their backs

If I could I would

Gouge out the flesh that still lives
The leaves that still flutter
The roots that still grow
The skin that still feels

Throw it into the salty waters at the edge of strength
Until they dissolve in the black hole of everything.

If I could I would.
