In the absence of light

I see the sound of the light under the door

the wave of

light spreading across the floor

like a pool of spreading oil spilled from a tanker.

I feel that light around me

it is there.

But my ears pressed against glass

do not hear the light.

The sound of tootsie rolls

dancing above me

on a floor of tin

fills me

reminds me of what

I think the light once sounded like.

What noise it made

as I waited for my glass of milk.

As it slid under the door

my milk cold

the light


Can you tell me where the island is now?

What do you think?
