an invitation

i joined the choir only to
sing your ballad, nervous
the chords tangled in my neck
ironed themselves out
over the years, i lost my
right to an invitation.
the same voice i speak now was
strengthened by your name
the pristine glass i swallowed
is now wet with fog.
the shards are flying up
and are lodged in my tongue.
