What is Poetry But Text...

Sensitive ears of nature I have found. Poetry is not the sight of words but the sound. Spoken,sung or played on a guitar... Human, machine,instrument or nature. Any of these are cool as long as they're written down. A flute playing, a bird singing , a car engine starting. Someone whipping , chopping, cooking in the kitchen. Hear it first, then write it down. For what is poetry but the text of the sound that you've found?
