Push against a wall
that holds a mass
of memory, enormous
archive, where dreams
and secrets are linked
a dam that restrains
a flood, a lake expanding
behind, broader deeper
filling crevices and inclines
the future whirling
in turbines, oxygen boiling
in the churn, pressure
building, to spill in deluge
energy lighting the mind.
