a flicker into flux

so from this the stream issues
its fascinating tide
sometimes this or that
I have focused upon your salience
but really I mean
some sort of overall engagement

is no diminution
I suppose is what
I meant to say
to you at dawn in the still firelight
like the sky presses down
can I do that also
I mean can we get serious here

for a moment
can we just stop
and get upended
with each other
can we transpose and uncurl
all of our meaning
into another saxophone entirely?
