karl 3d

we drove huddled together in a VW hatchback

to see your arms flail rhythmically to synthesized music

in a former church outside Detroit

and there wasn’t a doubt that you were doing exactly

what you were supposed to when

you let your art wash over you


even the less-inclined could not resist your happiness

when you let the light in

and years later I still think about how much the rest of us

might feel if we could but just open the valves

and remember what imagination and love

for what moves us feels like
