Into Your Own

(performed at “The Show 2010: The Art of the Duo” in conjunction with Marcus Petitt original song, “Into Your Own”)

Though I am only a seed
buried warm in the ground,
the King of Tiny Stages,
my roots run deep and six feet around
through this green, cemented city.
And the day I crack —
the day I crack through
the humming, Seattle soil,
you will hear the sound
of my roots anxiously star-bound,
my honest, sonorific “Ohm…”
as I finally come into my own.
