We are what remains

We are what remain,
after songs have finished writing us

It took them supreme effort…
To let go…
Of their sharp edges, their speed and singularity.

They need to talk
With other songs in comprehensible language

They need…
To slow down, extend their fingers and hesitate.

Songs write a person
Barely, stop and materialize.

We are what remains.
