We Will Start Over

we will start over.
writing our words in chalk.
breaking off in mid sentence.

begin again.
go back to the first measure, metronome,
conscience, word, dream;

the colour green bubbling up from the springs.
and this is sun,
occluded skies, unconcluded Everything-

and tangerine peel and what you feel
when the earth is damp
after spring rains

in a bright country
first day of school
the ruled paper

fresh out of the pack.
