Ears

I handed in my “ears”
I’ve had my four weeks trial,
they made me feel
like cotton wool
was stuffed inside my head.
So please be patient with me
if it takes a little while,
to interpret all the syllables
in the sentence you just said.

When I have trouble hearing you
against life’s background hum,
and ask you,
for the third time,
to please repeat yourself,
is not because I wasn’t listening
inattentive, scattered brained or dumb,
the reason I can’t understand
is because I’m slightly deaf.
