November 20, 2013


Small white ball rolls across the floor
Of an all-red carpeted room

Antique rocking chair
Rocking on its own

Noises like voices in another room
Then the heaviest quiet

Willowy curtains billowing
In an unfelt breeze

Far-off echoes of laughter
Without a first laugh

Faint scent of roses
And old lavender

Shadow across the window
There but gone

Scratching sounds in the wall
A sudden loud thump

Small white ball rolls back again
In an all-red carpeted room
