this city suffocates so we don't
speak.
no, at best
we sing in sign language:
the hushed glances, the solidity
of shoulder blades
and judgments--
the smothered
eyes.

hey.

listener--
let's go.

let's leave the choking crowds
and chase out somewhere
where the wind blows
wide and rich--
where the knotted songs in your
throat
unravel.

somewhere
to take these beartrap ribs
and let us
breathe.
For *0hgravity and written to Suffocation Keep (fabulous song, by the way).

Mmmmmmmmmm, the pacing of this, the way you let us pause and pick back up, is really gorgeous. :)

I simply adore that concept: singing in sign language. Beautifully executed!
