    **Crescendo**

    It was deaf mute ignorance
    That I didn’t hear before
    That sacred love could
    Do-re-me-fah-talk
    Until I evolved and
    My body became amplified
    Eloquent
    My sugar walls have Richter scaled
    Echoes in ecstasy surround sound
    So deep, so base
    My tone pitches good Lord! waves
    Of voluminous yes, Jesus! Screams
    Tenuated “ahs”
    Harmonized “ohs”
    Hard raspy moans
    Made soft
    Oh
    My
    God
    Undulating convulsions
    Rocket my fleshy frame
    To stratospheric planes
    My moon zoomed bursting
    Heavy throbs, oceanic thirsting
    My body temple
    Was a trebled tempo
    Trembling
    When I came wailing
    A purified sanctified justified
    So-lah-ti-do
