except the fire

A Poem a Day for September #6


I have muted every sound
bar the crackle
of the fire

the drone of a distant plane

the wind-rush of a car
flying in its glee
down the straight stretch of road
that is the street outside

and a murmur
soft
from the kitchen fridge
that whispers of chill nothing
should I care to listen

I do not

I am in the silence
of muted sounds

except
the fire
