Saying What Hearing Wants

Though your heart is stuffed in a box without room to beat,
                                               you insist you are relaxed


are stretched full length on a recliner of invisible nails,
                                                you are comfortable


have the heel of a hobnailed boot crushing your forehead,
                                                  you are doing just fine


vibrate like over-taut piano wire tuned to the key of scream,
                                              you have never been better.
