Shine

Maybe I should,
let the ice cubes
“speak for me.”
Everything I don’t say,
won’t say,
can’t say,
and the needle
on the record
gets stuck
on these
three words,
‘shine for me’,
like some haunting echo
that bounces
off the walls
‘inside of me’.
So, I kick the console,
the needle jumps, skips,
and the song continues
from my favorite band,
and the ice, it melts, finally.
