A Late Entry – prikcab (Ian Perlman)

 

cool crisp sheets invited me in

shielded with blankets 

I could stay forever 

but I will get up again 

 

up or down

the dial cannot turn

as the knob was lost long ago

the sound seems off to me

 

locked doors 

are they new or old

I’ve stopped looking for the key

time to break them down 

 

wind rattled the windows last night 

was that you

that carried the gust

I was there listening

  1. Your final stanza is very relatable for me, when every time wind blows at night, and this week the wind has been gusting every night… and I lay awake listening ….
    “wind rattled the windows last night
    was that you
    that carried the gust
    I was there listening”
