My Poem: His Other's Ears
His environment fostered ruin, cultivated despair
His weakness constantly pitted against his other’s strength
Figurehead unlistening unencouraging thwarting
Ideas, tangling vision with belittled opinions
Even the most angelic sprouts from there
Would grow sour and bloated with ugly
Her ecru paraphrasing confused him,
Accustomed to the charcoal smears
Binding his ears closed
