my ear rests as the channel

my ear rests as the channel
between myself and the vibratory information surrounding me
a channel reaching back into time
when reptilian jaw moved toward mammalian ear
coding my perception
high low
thresholds
of
dynamics
pitch
that I will hearfeel
that are perceivable
through the juggling of
evolutionary necessity
which trains me to the
crack of a twig
cry of my infant
sniffing for gendervoice
the delicate resonating response to
pleasurepain
(a pure vibratory re-flection re-cognition
of intoned experience)
wailsighowl
screamurmeroar
humclick
the tonguepitch modulations
of (tonal) language
the babymouth
wrapping itself
around
wet and chewy
soundmeaning
unflaggingly shaped
by the cochlear nerve
expanding listening
which learns itself
through repetition
(to hear what I cannot)
an impossibility of brain
responding to what it
cannot perceive
until it does
