Fast as Saint Ignatius

If I could be in two places at once,
I’d defy Newton’s old bugbear
and warp the mirror to see myself

at the other end of the universe
looking back.  If I could live a desert
life, one step ahead of earth’s curve,

and blur the boundaries between
being and dreaming, like between
the storm and Pedernal,

the one moment in O’Keeffe,
I’d live out my time on Ghost Ranch
like it were heaven

and I were made of stone cold blossoms.
But my order is the order a la mode
without the travel to the Basilica

or heaven, without seeing beyond
the moment, this tree, this star,
this absence at the center of the flower.
