Attention! ( a poem?)

Attention, Attention, Please!
I am deaf in one ear
Ninety percent .
Artillery,radioman's growling headphones maybe
Miss a lot
Knew a guy on the lower autistic
Proud of "super" hearing
Perceived everything
Saved from nothing
In cacophony hearing
the ice machine filling a glass other side of the cafe
All the rest in between the same
Filthy rich in sound
Persevering on nothing
As deaf as I
Worse maybe
I know that
I have a deaf ear to turn
and can determine
in which direction to turn it
not bothered by an ice machine
---William Sandia
