wrench my dreams

hidden beneath the ground
I found the gears
a miracle
I watch myself out there
bending, keying
my hands so busy
what sources I seek
outside the hallways
what drives my gestures
yet I watch
previous forces are unknown now
I set limits to the inherent drama-
while I watch
I can also listen to my singing

"carry my whims, carry my dreams
naked, raw and so honest"

I am glad there is singing inside these mechanical dreams..like oil to make the gears turn more easily..Jae

It is indeed a miracle to find those gears. One that comes with age or wisdom, I believe.

I also like "the gears / a miracle", as they are, indeed.

oldegg said...

It looks like the new found gears are metaphorical for finding your way, a release from the old past, a door to a new life that has released a such potential that was not possible before. No wonder you are singing.

To listen to one's own singing is so important. I'm glad the speaker in your poem is learning that art.

I could not live without music and I see the passion here in your writing.

Scenes from Jean-Luc Godard's film Alphaville run through my head as I read your anagogic, powerful poem.

Beautiful.....:-)

Mariya Koleva said...

"naked, raw and so honest" - and your wording, the composition you've made, is so imaginative. The combination of "wrenching" and "dreams" is so exact, in fact.
Best, M.

Great poem...multiple potential meanings.

Jules said...

Cheers for gears! The ones that allow us to pump our blood, and hear our voices... Sing loud, long and often!
