Ivan Jenson: "Hearing Things"

Lately, I have been
listening to people
and places
people sound like
words and laughter
sneezes and song
places sound like
the hissy fit of the wind
and the fender bending
clash of traffic or
the shriek of cloud
busting jets
and sometimes
I just sit back
and listen to myself
travel through time
like an HG Wells
in this soft
in the middle
and I swear
I sound
like a one-monk chant
in a temple
of wonder and doom
