click of dishes in the sink stops
hold breath—
cricket opens dialogue for a long solo unanswered
hold breath—
exhale without phonation

riot of tumbling ashtrays clatter uselessly in head
—broken glass to step on later

shoe on linoleum queries rhythmically
throat clears pointlessly

questions seek answers roundly flatly softly bluntly
tap spews water
