Morning in Another House/dan raphael

i hear birds but not rain;  i see rain but not birds.
the wooden floors don’t talk to the trees.
electricity is still asleep.  wind is in church.
2 cats on 2 counter corners wait for someone else.
the house has many questions but knows we don’t hear with our bones.
even the wi-fi cant go everywhere in here.
the tiny fish the cats exhale in their sleep
                    cant swim from one door to the other.
as the roof is both earth and sky
                     we’re so fortunate to live between them,
                     never fully at ease.
