Right down the shocked street with a


That sends all else skittering to the


Redness, brass, ladders and hats hurl


     Blurring to sheer verb,

Shift at the corner into uproarious gear

And make it around the turn in a squall

                                              of traction,

The headlong bell maintaining sure and


     Thought is degraded action!

Beautiful, heavy, unweary, loud,

                                        obvious thing!

I stand here purged of nuance, my

                                          mind a blank.

All I was brooding upon has taken


     And I have you to thank.

As you howl beyond hearing I carry you

                                          into my mind,

Ladders and brass and all, there to


Your phoenix-red simplicity, enshrined

     In that not extinguished fire.

The fire-truck has caught the attention of the poet by jolting him out of whatever it was he was thinking. \"My mind a blank\" implies he is now entirely attentive and open to the lesson of the emergency.

This poem is explaining the "Mind". Mind is compared to a bat (->metaphor) and it "weave and flitter, dip and soar."
