How to Listen with Our Tongues

Language is embedded in our bodies, circulating & skeletal; at the same time, language(s) enter us from the outside constantly. How does cross-language work help us to hear differently in our own language? Where is listening a form of speech? How is writing a tool for opening up new and revolutionary approaches to language, and hence to thought, imagination, action, and justice?
