When and in how many ways does your voice crack?

Offfen enufff, and these ways:
in self-same concentric or spiraling patterns,
in wounded-knee creases,
in glottalized guttural graphemes,
in M-dashes, chopped 'n' screwed,
in "Voice of the Nature" is my ringtone,
in as-is so-and-so,
in a cold, dry smattering,
in newly illumined minus-signage.

(An italicized hyphen hissed,
revolted, forsook its place

& ligature duties---
it lung'd out at me.

Now, we've a little glare
lodged snugly against

the underside of our upper-
left cranial plate.)
