I know you find it hard

sometimes to explain why it is

you tap out rhythm tap on everything

There are melodies you hear

soft as beating heart

There is rage paradiddle dee dee dee

Come passion shuffle

come snare me a dream

Who are we who expect

poet words to connect

The need and the answers

breathe within.

In that moment you have a choice

There’s always a choice.

Someone free said that once.

Afterward.

In that moment when you’re convinced

you’ve heard the crack of bone

your leaking heart losing faith

dissonant grace

felt it, felt yourself

You know with certainty something has broken

What comes next?

Even if you don’t know yet if there’s anything there

worth groping for, worth saving—

Can you hear the music through the roar and rumble

Can you still hum some favourite tune

a few bars to hold onto

some sorrowful blues maybe

some cowboy gush of lonely bravado

some whimsical ditty

to carry you through?
