Hard On Hearing

What do we hear
when we are hard
on hearing

sounds far and near
sharp metallic birds
hummingly trill

the sorrow of the song
sparrow’s syllables
feed me

and chick-a-dee-dee
quaver and buzz
flute whistles

nautical vibrations
ding dongs
and foggy toots

warnings and come-ons
calls for help
turn-ons and turn-offs.
