Gurgling of coffee grounds being drenched;
very intermittent car swooshes;
flutter-flap of jays, sparrows, finches, cardinals
and the orchestra of all their calls;
popping popcorn tap of keyboard keys
as final sermon sentences are smoothed;
whispers and sighs are in my head, in my heart
so I am listening, completing, ready to be ...

It yawned its big yellow yawn
after another squealing stop
despite its slow approach.
The two butterflies
who
had
been
waiting
walked up the step-tongue
and then the yawn ended,
and it crept back up to some speed
before letting out, and letting on,
through another yellow yawn.

Tonight I spoke to a sliver
of the moon;
it did not speak back.
I needed it to say, to solve
the trouble stirring
in my soul, in my soul.
It did not speak,
this sliver.
It was bright
but banal in its response
to my roiled heart.

Your counterpart, "unfair"

Forget "fair."
I prefer "focus." And "faith." And "for ...
today."

Yes, today.

Little sister is still asleep.
All safe.
No need to worry that she'll see
the T.V.
with it's fuzzy red fellow
la la la la la la -ing.
The one you so adamantly have
outgrown, that you are
"too big" to watch because it's for
"little" kids.
Oh, but daddy hears you.
You are singing along.
Laughing.
It's like you're dancing with
an old friend.
Indeed.
