Push, push November 18, 2008

There was a push, push,

then a knock, knock.

No voice, a little breathing,

maybe exasperation.

Knock, knock, then again,

maybe a whimper like

“I know you’re in there,

you know I’m out here,

why don’t you answer?”

I didn’t choose to answer,

ensconced as I was

in a warm room.

The night was bitter

and I didn’t choose to

throw in with it.

I chose to be alone.

There was a push, push,

then a knock, knock.

No voice, a little breathing,

maybe exasperation.

Knock, knock, then again,

maybe a whimper like

“I know you’re in there,

you know I’m out here,

why don’t you answer?”

I don’t choose it, that’s all.
