My Talented Ears

While reading a poem

 

on an airplane

 

on the ground

 

 

flight attendant’s

 

hurried instructions

 

rules

 

that really don’t need saying

 

 

and a guy

 

in front of me

 

leaving a business message

 

by phone

 

 

in that abnormal voice

 

we all use

 

when not speaking

 

to any real people

 

except who really is listening

 

 

but that’s the point

 

that I’m listening

 

to my poet

 

not with ears
