Ears deceive, head, ragged from trans-atlantic scramble,
broke sleeps, shaking stick-bones, time-zone sickness, miss
my brother, struggles to connect in the soundcheck, feel
the body shake it, brake it off, vibrating, collision, the team
closes ranks, wraps around, injects it’s love, compassion,
patience, tolerance, pulls one out the bag for each other & everything clicks into place.
