Ear Hair

You can see me better than I can:
are those ear hairs
streaming out of my ears?

those are not nose hairs in my ears
but I am feeling something.
Are they ear hairs?
What else could they be?

What else would I experience
and what else should I expect
as a man of a certain age
with certain groans as I stand
and certain cracks as I sit?
Of course my ears are hairy
and my head is bald
and my nose is runny
and my legs are weak
and my back is pocked
and my ears
– god, my ears…

it feels like silk on these things.
