Anticipating the sound of the
the birds chirping madly
the dog snoring quietly, blissfully
on my lap.
There is no other sound or
family voices arguing, debating
no rock stars shrieking 'poison'
footsteps stomping overhead in a hotel
sea lions barking madly on a pier
freeway traffic horns and screeches
are far away now
because I am home at last
and no one else is here.
