Wide Sigh

I thought that there were two
The good voice
And my voice

I thought the good voice was buried
And I would have to go
Under my voice
Which is glittery and cold
To get there

Then I heard them
A drumbeat and hawks
Also snakes
Many wild voices

Big beats
One beat
All over

Do you hear it?
I hear it now
Speeding up
Taking me up
