pull out all earplugs

Posted to Action Poetry




remove your ear plugs
follow the sound
of the bells of life
and sharp perception
will slice you like a knife
wide gashes in your eyes
now they're open
you can see and hear

now reach your hands out
and use them
for the first time without
ignorance
you can feel

take a deep breath
and acknowledge the world
you can taste and you can smell
and you can live
