Intent and Poise

If I wasn’t so empathetic

I know I wouldn’t even care

or better yet, I would hardly be aware

of the impending essence

of those near and far

that collide with my vessel

so connected we are

this makes mention of intent and poise

this clairaudience picks up the voice

and the vibe within and out

that is even too loud to shout

yet vibrates to the sound of a chorus rhythm

and echoes throughout the veins of those listening
