there is a small song

there is a small song

there is a small song 1836 3264 Darren C. Demaree

i told my daughter there is a small song a loose skin a lip bend an
obvious note or two in every day that could be folded into the
minutes but you choose to roll around your tongue and release into
the echo that always returns to tease your tongue in the best of life’s
inelegant displays don’t tell me what you call it just promise me you’ll
be as playful with the world as it is with you that you’ll sing nonsense
amidst the nonsense and smile because it’s all yours
