Door shut.
Silent afternoon.
Mother, couch.
Phone, charging,
candy crushing
comic reading
quiet waiting.
One call.
No answer.
Two calls.
No answer.
Please, come,
sit down.
Rare visitor
appears again.
He wraps
his hands
around fists.
Bald brother
standing unsteady
voice trickling
into phone.
Answer muffled.
Breakfast cold,
voices unsteady,
mother trickles
within kitchen.
Locked out.
No context.
I sit
in silence.
Shut afternoon.
Quiet, rare.
Couched calls,
mother waiting.
Cold. Cold.
Cold. Cold.
