My favorite song
was playing on the radio,
one of the ones
that grabs my mind
so hard it keeps me
up at night.

My renditions rarely do justice,
sometimes live recordings don’t either.
There is that way that music
makes you remember your legs,
your foot tapping on the floor
you remember how strong
you really are,
forget all the ways the world
made you doubt it,
it was a song like that.
