If I were a bell
What would make the metal of me sing
Oh, friends, not these tones
In a time too soft for bells, they sing
Where is solace in the noise they bring

What hand is it darting
In and out between my ribs
And what is shaking what is in there
Oh, so violently
What is it that falls in me
And never gets again to be
As high as it was 'ere it crashed

Focusing on wellness
I have focused on my wellness
For so long it has become
An empty part of me
I have said the words and
I have made the noise so often
It has become strange and meaningless

Oh, and when they toll
Oh, the tones the tones
The timbre
