Electric things

Turning down the volume,
from 30 to 11 to 1 to 0
Like a pantomime
A deliberate, inexorable striptease
Wooden floors naked
The soft buzzing of things electric
unknown at different frequencies
The heat registers tick and echo to each other
A languid conversation from wall to wall
in some primordial animal language
The shadows roll over in their sleep and
throw a restless arm across your waist, dreaming

Youโ€™re alone
But the silences have each other
And they have you
Soft static clings like cotton candy and crackles
A change of posture enough to make it flit away
Like lunar moths to an empty ceiling
