Forward #2

Forward #2

We are not the same.
We tell as many stories

as the endless stars
we’ve heard so much about.

But there is a sound we
have in common,

some rhythm hiding
underneath our words.

We strain to hear it
in our circles each night,

lash out when we
find the unaccountable

dissonance lurking behind
those almost-rhymes.

Oh, to be one. What
miracles we could weave

surging forward united
instead of wandering these

aimless circles we trace
in our futile attempt

to harmonize.
