tin ear

that favourite singer of hers

that I’d mishear the lyrics to

sing along in my own way


& bless

she never once

called me out on or

trashed this broken voice

just sat there with a sweet smile

singing the right words

with correct melody

perfectly in tune

in homage to her hero

& this gruff lump

beside her

having fun

if out of tune

in his own way
