I want to know

the names of things,

even if you and I

must make them up:

for socks that have lost their grip, 

but are still my favorite;

for undiscovered syllables

resident in our every utterance;

the noticing

how next morning

the sun rises with diminished vigor.

Something about a bridget

that each time you cross,

you look down, unsure the water

will still be there.

When I rang, if you weren’t home, you couldn’t hear

those things that can never be unvoiced

even in empty rooms.
