Humming

It is a grumble,

round rumble,

hard tone

tune

deaf

rolling

and dropping

spinning

and tumbling

of la and ooh

and repetitive

word-fumbling

in my head?
maybe not…

Why today?

Why today

why do I miss that bristle brush

rush

of love

push

push and shove

fighting

playing

and your smell

as well

it burns

in my memory

on my tongue

and in my lungs
