like a movie you cannot remember the name of
the actor you cannot recall
that time you hummed the song's verse
to revisit its title
the chorus, like so many other choruses, goes
through your ears and your veins
trumpet thinning to widen
your mind feeling lately
so much like a sieve
you rattle a pattern
and tap out a rhythm
and sing
what it is that you need.
