The problem with the ears

The problem with the ears
The ears that can hear all
The mind that sees all
Is that I don’t want to know

Even more than you
don’t want me to know
I don’t want to
It’s impossible

Insufferable sounds
Your moaning and anger
Your wins and your losses
Snowflakes that stay on your nose and eyelashes

Suzy loves Joey
And Joey loves Jill
And Jill loves Suzy
You’re pathetic, is what you are

You’re a book
An audiobook
That’s thousands of pages long
With no plot

No, millions of pages long
Poorly acted
Written even worse
Tropes galore

Let me sleep
You’ll never let me sleep
Do not disturb me
Let me be

You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be. You won’t let me be.

You won’t leave me alone

Leave me alone

Leave me

Alone

Leave

Me

Alone

Let

Me

Be
