sing in me


To MLP

sing in me
electric voice
grand note on the piano
pedal depth baritone

effervescence aside
flow the jazz song to the acetate
from the saxophone
in an unbroken river
of languid penetration
by sound

sing in me
electric voice
record of time and youth
wine to grapevine

rising on rooftops
antennaelike
channel the greats
voice flattened to airwaves
singing american flesh

sing in me
electric voice
ground wire and ground zero
sing memories derelict

rising on the tops of toes
sing lovers' moans
tangled in the legs of beds
writing
writhing

on the edges of paper
on the wingtips of
first summer wind
and last memories
of autumn hot
and cold

sing in me
