Virgin Ears

The only bad thing

about our favorite songs

is that we can never again

hear them for the first time.

We anticipate the key change,

we memorize the melody,

we feel the harmonies,

our hearts supply the beat.

If only we could forget

at the end of each day

and listen again the next

with our virgin ears.
