Ear Here.

put yr. ear
 to a heart
put yr. ear
 to a stomach
put yr. ear
 in yr. pocket
and give it to
 a whore.

put yr. other ear
   to another ear
         and hear
the ocean roar.

put yr. ear in
the mouth of
someone you trust
and feel their

if you have a
wristwatch, now
is the time
to let it dissolve.
