Next door.

Voices. Curtain shadows without faces.

Shirts and dresses in and out.


No smiles.

No eyes of contact. Front door images

jingle keys; a door opens.


Fallen branches. A yard of weeds.

Soda cans advertise litter.

Ten seasons of leaves.


Spirits without names. A porch without


Never are they neighbors.
