The room fills with absences
they vibrate in a late afternoon quiet
like the after tone of church bells
that peal, insistent, on airs
taut with the almost heard of thinning chimes.

They press, the absent,
their angers, their loves, their desires
an almost felt
a tenseness in the heart
prisoner of itself.
