The Dark Dancer in Shadows is Called Lizzie this Time

for Margo and of course Shawn

Love can be tuned to a frequency of sound,

a rhythm measured in Meters,

in Hertz.  I just have a different vocabulary

from yours, but my tones are honest,

they are genuine.  Sometimes me getting lost

in myself: that infinite fiction growing up

like walls around me.  Inventing question after question

because she forgot how to listen to now, in a silence

speaking no sounds within the head.
