    Mood: The Usual
      
    Memory As a Hearing Aid
    by Tony Hoagland

    Somewhere, someone is asking a question,
    and I stand squinting at the classroom
    with one hand cupped behind my ear,
    trying to figure out where that voice is coming from.

    I might be already an old man,
    attempting to recall the night
    his hearing got misplaced,
    front-row-center at a battle of the bands,

    where a lot of leather-clad, second-rate musicians,
    amped up to dinosaur proportions,
    test drove their equipment through our ears.
    Each time the drummer threw a tantrum,

    the guitarist whirled and sprayed us with machine-gun riffs,
    as if they wished that they could knock us
    quite literally dead.
    We called that fun in 1970,

    when we werenít sure our lives were worth surviving.
    Iím here to tell you that they were,
    and many of us did, despite ourselves,
    though the road from there to here

    is paved with dead brain cells,
    parents shocked to silence,
    and squad cars painting the whole neighborhood
    the quaking tint and texture of red jelly.

    Friends, we should have postmarks on our foreheads
    to show where we have been;
    we should have pointed ears, or polka-dotted skin
    to show what we were thinking

    when we hot-rodded over Godís front lawn,
    and Death kept blinking.
    But here I stand, an average-looking man
    staring at a room

    where someone blond in braids
    with a beautiful belief in answers
    is still asking questions.

    Through the silence in my dead ear,
    I can almost hear the future whisper
    to the past: it says that this is not a test
    and everybody passes.

    You've gotten rid of all your pieces?
    And I couldn't help but notice that your reciprocation % denoted a gamer term. How have you been stranger?

    Hey, just dropping by once again... how have you been? I've been doing a lot of pondering about all the stuff I've been reading... I posted something in the forums, you know your religion and war one. I don't know... what to say really... And I guess I've made a bigger part of my choice already... Like you've always told me, it's more about God than it is the scriptures, even though they also hold some value. I guess I really do agree with you on that one... Thanks for the 'guidance' if you can call it that.

    Kanu... I've been reading a lot about mysticism in relations to what you sent me, and reading some of what you sent me aswell. But I must say, this past week I went to go live with a muslim family, and learnt a lot more than I have reading about Islam. Wonder what I'll do when I grow out of my teen years... Sorry if these thoughts are discordent, and misoriented... By the by, hey ! What have you been up to ?
