A Question of Change

Do you hear the words or
feel the rhythm that smacks
like a hammer

against the door, knocking
until the verbs splinter
and nouns crumble,

or is it all white noise,
static, a sound that grows
on you until

you take it for silence,
never suspecting that
deafness can be

just what you want to hear?
