Raid (i)

night, asleep

after valentines

messaged “night”

he wakes; strange silence

no traffic, just the night bird

drapes back-lit by blues

    I know that deep silence in the night when the whole house is asleep. Love it.

    1. It wasn’t just a house, it was a hotel, a whole street!!! And still the bird is awake under the orange street lights…poor bird
