sounds behind the window
are in me
I prefer as before
hidden in silence
and in your arms
drink tea with lemon
listen to Billy Holiday
hug the dog

the world
for me

i read this, now i'm rereading it to ms. holiday. the poem is mood-perfect. the two together is sublime.

I cherish the winsome specificity of the three lines at the end of the first stanza. Thanks for posting this good poem!
