Will Not Want

I want to be aware I desire awareness
of what I want to do and be each day
to pick the ripe apple seemingly out of reach
to know the flush of joy to bite the flesh
tart between my teeth like love or lust
the difference being only my cognizance
to drive along whatever moment I am in
to stop blind impulse’s shimmering chains
from wrapping along the length of my bones
so I can rise with the sun upon a new world
free from the fear of all which has come before
as if the languages we each speak could form
without our parents speaking each to each
