Sometimes I sign my emails
“I look forward to hearing from you.”
But that’s like saying “I see your voice.”
Can I also say, I smell the color of your eyes?
Or, let me taste your laugh?
I would love to touch the scintillating thought of numbers
But don’t know if I have eaten enough rainbows.
But I do know
I look forward to hearing from you.

Well, you’re actually LOOKING to hear. You’re looking forward to the experience.
That being said, it’s perfectly groovy to me to describe a sensory experience with the “wrong” sense. I mean, you say that something “smells cold”, it definitely conjures up a specific smell (which I’d describe as a sharp, bluish, jolt). Maybe it’s just my senses bleeding into one another. Ah, who knows? However you can take in the world, take it in!
But Dezra, I do all those things all the time! As for hearing from you, when I read your posts, your e-mails, your messages, I hear your voice speaking them. I literally hear from you.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
