vocation (n).

As I sit here, floundering, since, oh,
these are just words, and I am just
a girl who is tired often, and
what even is important,

there are birds, meanwhile
no bigger than
the palm of my hand,
concerned not with audience or reach,
concerned not with chorus or choir,
concerned only
with the song that swells
and the note that comes next.
