that loud that terrifying that held on to hustled
that deep bell peeping and sounding your earth's shake
a magnet four times stronger than the earth's core
that's me sitting in a straight-backed chair in business casual
saying yes, I'm his sister yes, I'll stay in the room during the procedure
yelling at the tube they've stuck you in
I know you can't hear me but I love you
and I'm yelling it whether or not you can hear me
