Alive Valentine

In the order of the deaths and births
of verbs and the brief reign of hip-hop
on our street I remember only cars
slamming on cars with its birdsong
background it too evolving and
endearing itself there are such
thumps in nature and a bird
that sounds like a machine
before the inventor was invented
but we can picture him or her
in vivid mental images that provide
a foretaste of that clairvoyance
for which we strive to stay alive
