when the hearing goes – 7/12/13

7/12/13 12:20pm – 7/17/13 8:50pm

when the hearing goes
(lesser four)

when the hearing goes where does it go?
to the next body waiting in line?
much like a soul i think it will flow
through the next body when done with mine

wherever it goes i hope it knows
it won’t be my choice to do without
when the ear drums blow it’s what i’ll owe
for what went in to what i’m about

what good is hello if turned down low
to the man who knew sound as much more?
i’d trade my nose or any of those
senses that make up the lesser four

why it comes to go i’ll never know
so i hold on for dear life to mine
whether leaving slow or ear drums blow
to the next body waiting in line
