St. Peter Chrysologus

there are so many sounds

tonight and I can’t tell

if it’s only you

trying to make

the least amount of noise

as you tiptoe down the hallway

on these hardwood floors

with nails that cry

in this humidity,

or whether

it’s all these cicadas.

it is the season,

after all.

we are the ones awake

and listening.
