this is from my regular morning writing exercise SOMETHING THAT FELL OUT where i write a poem in response to immediate stimuli on social media in one sitting. that said, there may be bunky typos etc. i'm just glad social media brings me wild & amazing facts.

 

mice sing : they
emit ultrasonic
vocalizations 
when they en
-counter sex

their twittering is
a loft of short
limbs
making haste to
impregnation

the sound is so
high-pitched that
you
& i cannot hear
it : nor should we

the musicality of 
mice belongs 
solely
to them & love 
they make real

but if we pitch
our ears to their
frequency
we can hear the
flutter of hearts

attraction has the
power of making
voice
magnetise itself
to unknown force
