HEADPHONES

why should I hear it
I really don’t want
to
I drown it all out
pulling the curtain
shutters down on
you

in a heavy world
amidst much to care
for
my worn-out eyes close
immersed in music’s
headphones voluble
door

television plays
tunes amidst the
dead
hurt is never felt
hopelessness muted
while music fills my
head

believing you know
sad eyes that I see
with
the burdened world
where lights turn off
headphones musical
myth
