It isn’t enough to be alone.

The things in my house all are speaking to me at once.

I ask, “Do I love you?” and find I’m  kindly asking them to leave one by one.

What arrives is a shush.

Last night when I climbed into bed

my cat was already asleep on my side and didn’t budge

but trusted me enough sleep right through my stirring.

She stays.
