Don’t think
Don’t speak

Don’t move.
Just sit on the leveled park bench.

Hear the musical notes blowing
along the chords of the violin.

Hear the finch’s symphony
as he reinvents Mozart.

Take your ears and use them
as guitar picks; so you can

experience the guitar’s thrashing melody.
Use them as a bow for the

world’s smallest violin. That way
you’ll see that no sound is too small.

Use them to ring each
bell in the choir of the bells.

String them up like puppets so they
can hear from a composer’s point of view

as he instructs an orchestra.
Seat them at the front of the theatre

so that sleeping beauty’s fatal gasp
rings in their memory.

Let them sink to the Titanic so
they can hear the song

of the blue whales.
Then, you’ll know how to listen.
