Tinnitus for Beginners

I like, for the most part
having a Philip Glass cover band
tuning up and rehearsing
inside my mind
it would not have occurred to me
to request such an outcome
and if I had, I certainly
would have specified a feature
or two, such as ‘pause’
or ‘volume control’
but it is what it is:
at times perturbing, at times delightful
and actual silence, if that’s what
really floats your boat, is
not available to the sense
of hearing anyway
