NaPoWriMo #30 ~ VOICE


Voice

High-pitched tones and clicks
mimics of heartbeat and pulse

Bad copies
echoes of what is heard

Tying together the words
creating necklaces of air
to express myself

Speaking in ink
to be heard far away and forever

Learning to soar
adding melodic gems to my necklaces
making my notes harmonic

Again
I've picked up
my dead tree tattoo gun
polishing the tarnish away
tightening the links
checking the clasps
hoping to fill my paper treasure chest
with things of value
