2008 September 8 Poem: YUP


I replied at last. My neighbor in the next bed
asks questions when I come in, when I leave, and when
my light goes on when she's going to sleep:
"Did you feed the cats?" "Where did you
come from?" "Is it time to eat?" I seldom answer, but
tonight when she inquired "Are you breaking down our house?"
I replied in the affirmative. Since then I haven't
heard a word from her.
