Let evening come

hand in hand

with the shadow


of sound, the push

gentle into dark,

where terror’s


eyes are closed

until they’re open

& engaged


with the snap/cut

crackle of a bolt

in your spine. If


you wake up

& are motionless,

the loud sound


of danger has you

already, has you



& grasping

for a sound smaller

than any sound.
