I didn’t hear you

and you slipped past

your whispers only faint murmurs on the wind

less than the burbling susurrus of the river.

I heard shrieks and giggles,

running feet and splashing laughter;

I didn’t hear you.

Occupy one

Small space

Hide here

Stay safe.

The house rests.

Five bodies drift on dreams.

One sits, enshrined in song,

strums softly

on strings:

a living lullaby.

The Americans

are gone.

The internet

is quiet.

Apparently,

Thanksgiving

really is about

face time.

How wonderful

to be thankful.

Beware! After nail

clipping, the poodles are running

in stealth mode.
