#11 Response to music that could not be played on my computer:

I could not hear what they heard,

nor could I see what they saw.

How I longed to understand what made their feet tap and their faces smile.

I felt like an outsider for the first time.

I am not deaf, I can see, yet hardly what I’d came for.

Here I stood on the sidewalk outside the pub,

my ID securely at home in the jacket I wore last night.
