if i listen

if i listen


my eyes want to name

my eyes want to contain


if i listen           stretch             out

listening reaches                      beyond




i breathe in       yah

i breathe out       wey


i listen to the resonance,

each breath is the first


we draw in life             yah

we release into being            wey


some call it God
