Poem Series: Experimental Poetry Forms: Stanzas, syllables, and repeats: Lists

This list of things is not random,
balloons filled up but not with air,
coals that smolder on a pathway,
water leaking from a faucet,
windows open during the night,
and blocks of calcium weighed down,
and all these things combined,
together make one thing.

Force, heat, flow, sense, and pain,
and all these things combined,
stacked up together like wood blocks,
inside the cubic foot of space,
and in front with no avoidance.

This list of things is not random,
a valve is turned and something flows,
water pours and smoke floats away,
a washer changed,
a window closed,
a weight is gone,
and peace returns.
