Please wrap me up

in an audio cocoon;

warm my silken threads

by the morning light

as I hear 10 versions 

of “Good Morning”

jamming from my

new Skullcandy headphones,

or soothe me to sleep

at midnight;

Cover me

with a dozen curling branches

that sing 10 versions

of “I love you”

as I gently rock

in the tree.

My new wings are still wet

but you can still

hear me sing away—

my chosen lullabies

are tinged with Soul

as my voice 

grows into

a deeper chocolate
