Heard but never known

Midnight hour,

The freezer hums,

I hate being cold.

Meanwhile,

The clock on the wall,

Not to be forgotten,

Ticks and tocks,

Always slower than he hopes to be.

From afar,

The car alarm wails.

Hey, he screams, look at me.

Everyone ignores him. Shut the fuck up.

The leaky tap,

Drips,

Methodically.

Dedicated to his pointless pursuit.

Plop, plop. plop.
