our new old neighbors

our new old neighbors
have moved just a little bit
closer – listen to

where the floorboards creak, count the
paces between quietudes

there are already days

there are already days
when my entire
body is
a question mark –
fingers stop
playing, shoulder
blades leak
acid, forearms
cry foul, knees
face a long stretch
of staircase below
with premature
apprehension
