Sometimes I will be the low note,
by that I don't mean lack of highlight,
musically speaking here, now

I express different thoughts when bass, 
not so basso, just warm, full-bodied, 
diffused round myopic on the ears

Unwavering quavers go boom,
and Om, and oh my

When I'm alto I'm me,
exhale on the note you are
most comfortably

Up never-too-high, just up too late
tonight, I try to find voice in the voices

...too much tension in the upper partials,
thick muddy crescendos and diminuendos,
cascades down upcoming rivulets, as I
live and breathe inside this roil

In the end, as in the beginning, there will 
only be static, a hum
