certain schools of thought
encourage the simultaneous consideration
of seemingly opposing truths

like so: no one can ever truly
understand your specific experience

and still a person can report
the exact pain you are experiencing

they feel it too
for the same reason

some good sounds:
very light rain on the hood of my jacket
notes from a cornet being practiced
by an unknown neighbor
the tiny crackles of bread crust
a few moments – but not immediately –
after it has been set out to cool
