Down the hall


murmurs words of whispered


I can’t quite hear.

The house is supposed to be


so I stalk the sound

searching for chatty intruders

their sibilant sussurance

strangely assured for the late hour

and their uninvited status.

In the bathroom,

it comes clear:

the toilet’s talking

to itself.
