Reading a Voice - March 30, 2022

notice our serious tones

come in lower octaves

confessions emerging

in a guttural grovel


while playful ones

range much higher

a joke rockets out and up

and laughter spirals with it


one stays in gravity’s pull


one tries to break it


we say

I love you

with a voice low

and feet on the ground


then sprint to the

mountaintop and shout

something falsetto

to the heavens
