The Phone Rings

                                           ... the phone rings

                                                                    ... but this stone on my chest won't let me answer

                                  ... I sit quietly

                                                      ... watch a sparrow build her nest above my door

Just This Morning

                                               ... just this morning

                          ... during my nap beneath
 my living room window

                                                                                             ... I was thinking
 the very same thing

What the World Already Knows

                      ... where river road meets the highway two swans appear in the soft grey light

        ... they follow my car to the bridge ... then return to the river

                               ... sometimes our minds need to catch up to what the world already knows

The Way You Kissed Me

                                        ... the way you kissed me when we hadn't seen each other in years 

                        ... how ... in my hesitation you said

                                                                                     ... I think we've waited long enough

Looking Out the Window

                         ... looking out the window of this motel room / listening to you sing in the shower

     ... knowing we can never tell our story
