It Would Poem by Alice Notley

It Would

Rating: 4.5


it would be that
but only if I knew how
again
Could something like
that get lost? no only
a little a little lost
but if only I remember
how I mean she or I
oh a freight train goes by
& they always do & did
do
I mean a real one too
that I'm not on & am it
very seriously
in this serious love world
that one
where something oddly music
will pass through your
night
and it will be me
sweet me

The conditional it would marries with, dances round, holds hands with, twirls and returns with that seriously all-kidding-aside freight train, self-conscious and no entirely sure of the dream, the ecstasy, the release from reality. I am transported, I am taken from here to there, and I can't but help to look down to make sure my shoe is tied.
