Counting Warblers

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
