A deaf man –

ears fell off at sixteen
open mouth lying on freckled skin throws-out pain noises
no girls coalescing in flesh
can’t mix DNA, eugenics gives garbage
hairless hear-less throws-out sound bolts
no women coalescing in flesh
can’t mix DNA, eugenics gives dirt
care-home abandoned reads rolling TV subtitles as nurses whisper with reflected lips
a deaf man sings back bird-song
