Teachable Moment

December 5, 2006

After a song concerning bodies, hearing and secret sounds as performed last night by Ship. Thank you David and Frank

(you don’t know
what you’ll remember)

My mother
once told me
that we hear
in ways besides
our ears.
Cupping
her hands
around her mouth
and pressing
the flesh megaphone
to my back
she spoke to
my bones
whose spongy
insides uncurled
like a thousand
silent, swaying
anemones
plastered against
an ocean of
locked door
