Hearing aids, huh? Too much time in the brass section? The firing range?
Surely not the dusty, whispering stacks that have brought you to this pass?
It is surely loud sounds and wrong sounds
That take the hearing from the mind
And turn it low; or else
You have placed yourself where things
Were being said you never meant to hear.
Surrounded by those who insist
On using their gifts for the art
To turn out bland noises of no merit.
Eyes are for eyes, when sundown's near;
But who would not give his heart
For just one ear?
