Home Sleep Song

Posted December 16, 2011 & filed under Notebook.

Listen now,

Listen to the wind whistling

by the window,

Listen to the TV’s muffled talking

swinging out my mom’s room,

Listen to the water dripping

in the bathroom sink–

how quietly it drips,

Listen,

every now and then the door softly shakes.

How annoying that gets.
