‘how he wrote the flow of our pouring’

‘how he wrote the flow of our pouring’

see that?
see how it came from nowhere?

it frightens me - sometimes.
how the words seem to come from a spirit
just behind the edge of hindsight,
beyond the dusk at the back of my mind.

is there a hole in space-time leading to where
the poets rail that their words must be heard,
must be still the font of all of their times;
and am i chosen as this conduit?
a vent in the dam of the damned words!

it frightens me,
                         and yet
i repeat them 
               because i have to.
do i not? do i not?

but it still frightens me to ask

‘how did i write the flow of his outpouring’
