are music majors taking the class for credit
and an auditor on Social Security
who can only hum one note and that’s the note he hums.
Overtones find a major chord. Then we march off and find a place to sit
and list the sounds while building castles out of sound.
Listening is the hardest thing a brain does

soliciting grants and donations.
It is now possible to follow sound into the brain
and map its journey up the brainstem and into the attic.
Some sounds turn on all the lights.
Other sounds turn them off.
In one creation myth human ears fly like bats
from one echo to another.
The bats returning to our attic
don’t trigger the motion detector in our driveway.
It takes poetic license to claim that motion detectors listen
>During the field trip inside the sound free chamber,
those strangers pounding at the door?
