Which Would You Prefer: To Go Deaf or To Go Blind?

i’d rather deafness of the two, but i’d go half-blind if i could:
see every thing pass in a blur.

pulling off the glasses from my face, i place them on the ground
near my feet, and then i turn.

shadow-boxing the air, i fight the shadows boxing me: spinning
punching kicking grunting, blind.

the sun is long gone. a car passes, twice. palm trees twitch,
dark towering globs against the sky.
