love lies sleeping
companionable silence
soft dog snores echo

“Lady’s” room

Yes

Your ass

Bouncing rhythmically in the mirror

Repeatedly

Look

Bounce

Adjust

Look

Bounce again

Your ass

Is delightful I’m sure

You shit

Strewn

Bag on bag on bag

Across three sinks

Makeup spilling everywhere

Perfume

Gaggy cloying

Sickeningly sweet

Pardon me

While I vomit

Retching

Dry heaves

The smell overpowering

Private domain

Public bathroom

Annoyance seethes

My audacity to Dane

To wash my hands

The only empty sink

Go back to twerking

You ass

I’m sure

Delights

Sing

Sing

Sing In the darkness

When night

Is it’s blackest

And the merest sliver of light

Seems eons away

Sing

Sing

When all around you

Is nothing but rain

When clouds are thick

And you’re certain never

Will you see the sun

Sing

Sing

When your song is choked

And the joy won’t come

When you’re way off key

And no one anywhere

Is there to sing harmony

Sing

Sing

Sing in the silence

When you know in your heart

That no one can hear

In a voice

Small and echoing

Sing

Sing

Because you remember

Your song is yours

And yours alone

And a million small songs

Fill the night with music

Sing
