Sounds: Two

“Speak to me,” said the deaf man
“Excite my innocent ear.
Speak to me of
Soaring violins,
Pounding percussion
Laughter,
Crying,
Speak to me of the music of
Life.”

“Speak to me,” Said the deaf man
“Excite my innocent ear.
Speak to me of
Falling rain
Roaring thunder,
Bird song,
Mosquitoes,
Speak to me of the music of the
World.”

“Speak to me,” said the deaf man,
“Excite my innocent ear.”
Weeping, he silently laughed,
Feeling the sound,
Deep in his chest
Tears rolled down his cheek
Pounding his ears with thunder
The music of life and the world
Spoke.
