WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
to linger, to stay - to stay in touch

What's in it for ME?
What could it be?

What's in it?
What's in it?

What's in it .... for ME
to stay in touch
to connect, to continue, go on

not just to browse
not just to rouse

but to allow
              for staying in touch

What's in it for ME?
What could it be?

It isn't cash
It isn't flash
It isn't fast crash blast into outer space
                          first place, amazing blaze

So what's in it for ME?
and why stick around?

Why?

 

****

 

Me -

that's what's in it for me

 

I become more me

I get to roam free

I get to breathe

I'm in it, flow with it

I get closer to me

I get into touch

I get so much

I feel love and hate

I desire I wait

I long and I grieve

I'm more of me

 

****

 

What's in it for me?

 

living and loving

longing

raging and hungering

belonging

***

 

What's in it for you?
to linger, to stay
to stay in touch

 

That's something I can't tell you

A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.
