On the Mic

Tired tonight

Slept in the sun, gazing

Prepared for rhythmic phrasing

Position in musical literalism

Embracing my skin, living in the rhythm

Can’t see past my face

Pushing past into musical space

 

Vibrations of “mic mic check” awaken me

To splendor

And I am fed!

And I am awake and resting with my familia

 

And I dare to spin

To weave tales of love

My fingers mastering the keys after so long

And I realize I am wired for sound and made for song...

 

And all is well. ■
