Joyce Sidman calls the Poetry Crisis Line

PATIENCE (counselor): Poetry Crisis Line, what is your emergency?
JOYCE SIDMAN (caller): Why should your black silk ears feel like happiness?
PATIENCE: Um…that’s awfully personal…and…honestly, I’m not so sure they should.

From “Dog in Bed,” by Joyce Sidman
