Apartment 1

The day

begins with:

echos of life

racing down asphalt

warm coffee in hand

and not enough sleep.

and the pitter patter of neighbors’ dogs

old couch cushions tilting

and my love handing out kisses

as we head out into the frey.

The night

ends with:

the next doors talking to loud

the across the courtyard

conversing on cellphones disregarding echo

while two floors up an argument flares.

In the alleyway

dog tags jingle

for one last

sniff before bed


inside this Apartment

is life

snuggling up for a

crime show episode

and dinner on the fly.
