spring knocks, and winter

spring knocks, and winter
does not answer, ignores the
buzz, buzz, buzzer, stands

still, no peeking from behind
the curtains, no creaking floorboards

quarter keeping score,

quarter keeping score,
the neighbor and i wake each
other up in the

night, toilet flushing, floorboards
creaking, a simmering silence

between the old man

between the old man
snoring and the younger man
pacing the wooden

floorboards from above, we learn to
coexist, one night at a time

our new old neighbors

our new old neighbors
have moved just a little bit

where the floorboards creak, count the
paces between quietudes

there is pleasure in
fine-tuning a
need, perhaps
for the sound
of your

shuffle,
pause, lift,
turn – even
the edges of
each floorboard
long for your weight
