I work hard
to listen, struggle
for inspiring sound.
The right channel
is heavy, bolting me.
I tilt strong right,
like a puppy begging.
My soul is rusty

Interesting juxtaposition of “rusty” and “roasting”…..makes me think of a burning barrel

…and my comment can but pale to the power of these words. There is so much going on here.
I feel like I have an iron rod in my right eye-socket.
I am walking in circles.

your poems are the naked bones of winter…the landscape of the soul laid bare…nothing wasted, all there, images like dream photographs yet gritty and so real…thank you for this dark jewel Carl…

What they said above, and more. That I want to say what you’ve said, and 500 words later it’s lost. You did it in nine lines.
