live with precision

live with precision
note to self

allow yourself to be
pierced by bird call
remember the timbre, how
it can squeeze your heart
each time the vibration
sails through—feel
it all, metabolize it all
that very allowing is
to live with precision

thank you to Elias Amidon for the title phrase
