work it out
(yes, I do)
by Meg Baird
yes, I do like the sound
of my own voice
it helps to ground me
yes, I do love my
intelligence and curiosity
no, I don’t mind being
we’re always alone
or we’re never alone
it’s the same thing
you can never own anyone
people have tried
and what a mess all that
yes, I do love sleeping
waking alone can be a bit
guess you can’t have
