"Vibrating Rows of People"

This small effort
Because this little singing
This little sound
Small song
This fathomless effort
This voice which comes from the gut
This soft effort at making song
This effort at song
This effort to make song which birds do effortlessly
What birds do effortlessly
This tiny bird
This tender worthy effort
And sometimes it is no effort
No effort to sing

Sometimes I’ve had a drink or two
Sometimes it’s effortless to make song
If  enough people sing in a group
If  I’m part of that group, I cry
I am holding a thing that breathes and makes sound
Where song comes from and goes to ookie
