Never before seen "slather" and "consciousness" as a subject and a verb! *
Thanks, Jake! I do like multi-purposing...
"Acoustic dampening"- I really like that.
Made me think of swimmer's ear, but the poem expands much, much further than that.*
Thanks so much, Carol!
Amanda, my inspiration was very much that awful feeling you get when even the smallest drop of water gets stuck in your ear and just won't come out. Thanks so much!
I can feel it. It feels good. Is that perverse?
Steve, flattering...and, yes, perverse! Just thinking about that drop of water meandering in my ear is starting to unhinge me...
Of course, I must remember that some people like a little unhinging...
Gave myself a charley horse once trying the kick trick to get the damned drop out. *
Mathew, I can believe it. I find the best way to get rid of that drop is to fill your ear completely with water and then drain as quickly as possible. Thanks!
Impossible not to move with the image. Good piece.
I can relate. Hate water stuck in my ear! You do a good job here.
Not one word wasted.
Thanks, Bill! This was one of my technical poems where I tried to use as few words as possible without losing thought. I was also trying to get it so that you can read the poem anywhere, backwards or forwards and still have "sense".

!! Thanks, Beate, as always! :)
