You counted warblers
While I sang their song off key
Press pause and hold me here
When did that day end?
Please don’t take it away
The birdsong is all I’ve ever had
You, sure, you, why not?
I don’t have to be me this time
In exchange for eye contact
I’ll be whoever you want
Please don’t look away
I’ve never been seen before
The warblers have all gone home
And I’ll wait forever for my chance
