and I was being
I closed my eyes
to focus.

Can you will yourself to hum?

Like most things visceral,
the harder you try the farther it fades.
I wasn't confused before,

but the best laid plans.

Because there it was,
your voice not so much in my head
as in my conscience.
More than that
the memory of utter relief
that I could honestly answer no
when you asked
"was it anyone I know?"
