Crowded Ear

In these shrill times,
with our thick filters
and anxious lobes, in
this season of proud

religion and excitable
doubt, when the only
measure of ‘truthful’
is my own tickled ear,

in the emptiness of a
cacophonous era, in
the vanity of my own
precious convictions,

speak, O Lord. Speak.
