Am I here?

Can you hear me



I am no answer

to your questions,

implied, or stated.


Is this what’s left–

to fade in and out

like a side-show ghost?


Am I here

scratching inside

the house’s walls,


like a rat

slowly dying?

    You are welcome.

    And I wanted to say rats in place of rays.

    The rays of my house do not stay there. They come and go at will. And from the places where I least expect them.
