not just sounds
                     from lips like coca-cola or
                  david bowie
              it's more than voice
                        'krishna krishna' - 

           mind fixed,
                    held steady
                             eyes taken in
                  and fingers
                        rolling wood
                     unconsciously 

               drawn into a chorus
                         of near silent murmurs
                    but together
                              speaks like sirens
                   like the soul's joy
                         rolled into 16 words
                         rolled into 16 rounds 

            body still
            calm
            breathing long breaths 

                       spirit soul jumping
                       higher with each
                       round within round 

               and God dances on your tongue
