2010/08/17 Sounds Guide - Poem by Margaret Alice

Found a way to do administration
that works like a charm: I must tell
myself aloud what I am doing every
step of the way for my brain to hear

Then it maintains concentration, now
I can save electronically - when I tried
previously, my brain did not retain any
step executed in short term-memory

Whatever I did, forgot immediately, but
when actions are chained to each other
by a series of sing-song words, my brain
knows where I am; I imagine a little alien

Sitting behind the controls in a small
compartment in my brain, not seeing
very well, only by listening does he
know where he’s going, only sounds

guide and inform him - I have an alien
in my head who only reacts to sound,
no wonder noise is so unsettling, when
he can’t hear what’s happening

He can’t steer and screams in my ears!
