Panis Angelicus Solo

Will I ever be able
to sing well?
Maybe if i vocal bounce and
tongue trill until dinner time.
If I lift my cheek bones and
and never slouch.
If I remember to aim for the right vowel
with the right shape of mouth.
If I sing forward and
don’t let
sound get stuck at
the back of my throat.
I need to keep shoulders down
I have to pretend I am floating and
pretend helium balloons are balancing on the top of my head.

The problem is
I have forgotten how to stand.
I step away from the wardrobe
and put my full length mirror away.
Panis Angelicus solo by
Cesar Francke for me.
I hope one day but not today.
Not yet.
