Where do you sleep at night?
I have a vacancy.

Thank You
For placing your name on my vocal cords
For the sound of your name leaving my wind tunnel
I like to say your name
Thank You.

For the sound of your name.

For the way it’s proclaimed
At random
Thank you for becoming a thought
A smile
Thank You.

For your name.

The new word I find myself so giddy to say
Its power is in the way
My body responds
To the sound of your name.

Thank You for this whisper
This idea
Your name

Shhhh.
Quiet world
I’m about to say it again.
