A train dhud-dhudding over a bridge above an endless creek

A window pounding to the reckless boom 

of a teenager’s idea of party music in a car.


The slow hiss of the gas burner 

A dark dawn

A leaf as still as my heart should be.


I lay my head over my sleeping child

and wait for my heartbeat to be one with his.
