I, Too Have A Harsh Voice - Poem by RIC BASTASA

if you only see me
you will see the difference
and if you hear me
you too will know
what a harsh voice can be

for it is the voice of
my own wilderness
the sounds of young elephants
looking for their mothers
the sound of birds looking
for a home
for mine is the sound of the
whale looking for a
place to die.
