Pick a song.

The rest will take care of itself.

Breathe deep the first note
through heel and every toe.

Lift, as space above,

Support, so strong below,

And you can,

With your voice,

Weld each word

On the back wall,

Sparks flying in the shape of the line.

Your interpretation of traditions,

Your rejection...

Don’t forget the words.

More importantly, Don’t

Forget what they mean.

What they don’t mean.

What they still mean.

If they still mean anything to you,

Finish the song.

Pick another song.
