"If they cut off both hands, I will compose music anyway holding the pen in my teeth." -Shostakovich

pale eyes, blank with madness,

deaf ears that hear the most delicate

of laughs and most innocent

of conversations and turn them
into plays on Broadway

stage lights burn eyes

heavy yellowy, dust-circling glare

shadow that follows me

to the corner store and back

alone, silence and cacophony

suffocate memories in dog-eared photos

from the day warmth became cold

and cold froze to glass

no monkey-grins or ponytails,
just pale eyes and deaf ears
