POEM: on listening to Anonymous Choir sing “Only Love Can Break Your Heart”

on listening to Anonymous Choir sing
“Only Love Can Break Your Heart”

I turned the light back on
so I could get this down
so I could tell you to LISTEN

this music brooks no compromise
allows for no turning away
cuts to the innermost part of you

it’s 1 a.m. and the hotel is mostly sleeping
in room 215 there are women singing
& if you’re not careful it could be too much

this is more than rainfall
more than water over the dam
this is the ocean, sung into your heart
