Did you hear?

by Kate Klein

Didn’t you hear that?

The sound of the pitch,

The tone?

Don’t you get it?

Don’t you hear it?

The tone is different here.

 I wish I had heard it.

I wish I heard anything at all,

Don’t you hear it?

I watch the man’s lips:

Can’t you hear at all?

Only with my eyes,

I can only hear with my eyes.
