Something BIG has been here

I want you quietly listen to the void:

ticking of a clock

shuffling of many feet (always too many)

and the hands, two hands

touching & reading each other’s fate

as they make the sound of drizzle

Amore, they call this sharing of noises

The heart – I can tell which haloed animals

Cat People from a book titled poetry

…Is it too much to ask for some sleep?
