Music Listening 2


Music sounds different

in the morning
or late at night

when you’re impatient or even-tempered

when it’s your own or a stranger’s

when you imagine her listening

when it’s bonafide like Bach
or played by the guy on the train
who sings Neil Young badly

when you’re wishing
you were more skilled at listening

when you realize
no one else hears it as you do.
