Refrain

The second

I hear your name,

my spine tightens,

transforms into

a taut thread

running down my back,

and I hear

a buzzing,

sense it

on the peripheries

of my brain,

alive on the ends

of every nerve

within the heated casing

of my skin.

A casual refrain.

A single word.

That’s all it takes.
