Evensong

Evensong, the cricket

plays his fiddle leg.

Night crowds me

off my lightless porch.

I cannot see these lines

I scribble.

Almost out of hearing

a catbird mews.

Her soft voice drowned

by the brass blaring

of cicadas.

Tonight the dark

has weight and substance.

Is it time to sleep

yet?
