Favorite Song

I like a lot of songs,

but not many like me,

not out of rudeness—

real songs are not rude—

they are just busy

with notes and lyrics

and keeping pace.

But this song

must have eyes

for kindred spirits,

must be the voice

to unspoken enchantments,

because every word

and every beat

turn me

inside-out happy

as if someone wrote it

just for me.
