Paper Ears 


I needed to get back 

To the lab again

Alone with paper and pen 

All these emotions 

Shooting through me 

In an unannounced current 

Of electricity 

Keeping me up turning 

The spin of the ballerina in that box

Hearing the music of my own 

…melodic thoughts

Like a deer in the woods 

Frolicking and evading 

The hunters postured in each direction 

The compass behind my eyes

Faithfully guided me to a covered protection 

To transfer the impulses from 


…to out 

All I needed to do was

  3. I like the imagery of the deer evading the hunters – it’s not just positive, it adds a contagious degree of joy in the build-up to the conclusion of your poem. For that matter, I like the transformation that your poem makes … a sort of panicked urgency in the beginning, that moves to the joy, and then ends with a degree of simplicity that totally negates the panic from the beginning.

  4. If it’s possible to put into words, a feeling of relief which only creative expression lends, then magically your intuitive poet self has done this. It’s like speaking truth when nobody has been taught the word. Excellent! ♡
