DPF / Antrobus

For decibels and angels, from Poetry, March 2017.

from Echo / by Raymond Antrobus

And no one knew what I was missing

until a doctor gave me a handful of Legos

and said to put a brick on the table

every time I heard a sound.

After the test I still held enough bricks

in my hand to build a house

and call it my sanctuary
