Jesse Nissim

Listening versus Hearing

 

I knew a woman who suffered

a blare through an unclothed ear.

 

Quiet was quicksand

pulling you wordless

just as you said this.

 

In the molten

center of the earth

an ability to adjust volume

is entirely underrated.

 

If I were to land on you

as pure sound, I might split

your thirst in two.
