The rain is falling and it is wet but
I stare at the corner anyway
more intent on this wall and what it
has to tell me teach me tell me. Maybe
there is something there. Perhaps
if I move closer or further away
perhaps if I could just hold onto
things stop dropping them but–…what?..
the buzzing?..yes…all the time the buzzing…
so-called…in the ears…though of course
actually…not in the ears at all…in the
skull…dull roar in the skull 
rain rice shoes rice blinds water shoes
water rain focus focus
focus back back back always backward
an image of myself shown back to me
always back but out of focus impossible
to see clearly actually I was too young and
had to wait in the other room. So I sat there
and waited, and waited and waited and waited.
And all I could see was this white screen
on this white wall. That’s what I remember.
