    This, the everlit, ambient traffic of our species
    the unnatural hard concrete and ever resilient grass
    the snores and moans and belches of a city
    that sleeps and yawns and glows like some alluring monster,
    the crystallized breath of strangers and the sleepy moonsurface of snow
    are lightening in my brain,
    no less bright and quick
    than the impulses that propel my muscles

    The pebbles in driveways, the rubber of car tires
    and the wooden porches
    are everstill,
    and I am blood, bone, and sinew
    by bursts of electricity

    Winter penetrates just so deep,
    because inside I am more miraculous,
    more stubbornly and conspicuously alive
    than any city from above

    The white ground is pink
    when the sky is pink,
    clumps of frozen crystal hold the shape
    of my steps,
    and yet the wind blows
    and I am still warm,
    still me

    I am burning and free willed and sovereign;
    snow melts on my skin and my heat rises into the night

    I am the death of less complex
    arrangements of carbon;
    hunger is brutal therefore I am brutal,
    watching the world jealously,
    yearning to conquer
    and lusting after every breath,

    and at the end of each day,
    having chased and devoured and played,
    I shall fall into a deep and twitching sleep,
    running along the brainpaths of a long and mysterious life

      i like this and am tossing it around in my head...but really would like a title to give it some focus...

    i think "untitled" is such a cop out...and too many people are using that out...

    i think titles really bring poems together...not titles that are too blunt or dead giveaways to anything..but just good titles that start us thinking.

    just me

    just thoughts
