WHAT IS IT
about the voices of those we love
that makes them
Is it our cells
beyond the child’s complaint
or with the lilt of the toy’s story
the sister’s tone with the toast and jelly
that carries and unfolds the caress
that rings in the sound of voices of
those we love
What is it
about the sound of voices of those we love
how do they ring and carry
How do we do without them?
How is it that they bring us home?
