Like you, I’d kill a mosquito in a moment.
But it does make one stop and think
how driven we are, even the least, to hear
the world’s incessant undersong—-
even if it was never meant for us
or never anything but clamor we wanted to be song—-
and how much we love it, and with what sadness,
knowing we have to turn away
and enter the dark.
from “Lullaby,” Peter Everwine
