The Pulse: A Spring Night | Kenyatta JP Garcia

what does a mechanism look like? what shape does a tool take?

when gears turn

what were cogs

a facsimile

of?
 
from where does change take its form? from what charge?

in what reflections

are the next and proximate

worlds born?

*

a weapon is worth its weight in its lack of necessity.
to be of no use is a bullet’s ultimate goal.
 
dust on triggers – the reward/

trophy

of tolerance

if not peace

*

what archaisms have crept into tomorrow? from what images were they cast?
 

a switch back/forth    off/on

a mold for more
 

circuits connected to work

to flow/conduct

*

in somewhere/out of some place
another.
 
continuity has an origin in transformation
progress an industry of revolt/

revolutions

a ride around circles

a drive along a diameter

to tell about where the circumference will lead

back to

but also where it’s been

 
how a spiral can be followed up or down
how a spring makes the old clocks become current
and continue to pulse

 
 
 
Kenyatta JP Garcia is a queer black/Puerto Rican writer living in Albany, NY who hopes everyday that one day things will truly get better.
