litmus

the little noises

they make in another room

litmus test for how we are

no irritation

it is love again

irritation

& no we are not

I wonder what they can be doing

mouse sounds along the floor

scrabbles on surfaces

sighs before the ping of the microwave

clatter of cups as she brings one in

I made you a coffee

what’cha doing in here?

oh nothing I say just scribblin’ about

& I feel this may be love

again
