"Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known."
— A.A. Milne

If I were a musician I would compose this story for you,
sing it right out to the ever-seeing stars
or play it out in calligraphy
on a piano,
have it come sprouting out
in raw note form from the mouth of a trombone.

For these words from my lips
burn my throat
splinter my emotions in a thousand directions
and to assure you of my truth
I must swell the sky with fathoms of foreign words
rather than sculpt one single note
to wring the sky clear
