When She Sings

Many times a song
gets stuck in your head 
and it’s there to stay 

Years later you may 
be thinking of a person 
you haven’t seen in years 

and they’ll appear as 
an off rhyme chord change 
and suddenly you’re 

singing falsetto to yourself 
up and down the stairs all day.
Sometimes it’s worth it 

to make up new words 
for a change, perhaps 
instead of her name 

you might substitute 
the way she smiles and turns 
her head when she sings.
