Listening In


Boy listening nature
Frustration maybe, though it seems
more quiescent rage than outright
irritation – & answers are there, no
irksome evidence vagues who is to
fault for this pretence; a dialogue
with yourself perhaps you think, or
a clue at personality of this intense
source of alter ego aggravation


But you live with it in the same way
as minds-voice accents persist, not
that there’s choosing in it – choice
went out the window with counsel
that made sense because you truly
heard what you were listening for
