Darkness outside. Going out
For a breath of air I hear
Some morning sounds;
A freight train to my west,
It’s moving north very slowly.
A neighbor’s cat wails mournfully.
I can’t see it, but I know which one.
Closer, the coo of a dove. And so
I add my own voice to this cacophony;
“Hello world. I’m still here.”
