Mostly quiet....

then a motorcycle passing

in the distance

About these ads

drills through the night

and in a corner of the garden,

last crickets

search for each other

in a two-note song

that trembles on a thin chain -

tiny drops of sound

About these ads

rising and falling,

rising and falling,

trying to perforate the dark.
