House Sounds

Disquieting pressure
Indeterminate groan
An aching at  the joints
A stranger in my home
Fleeting phantoms out of sight
Give sense to the unknown
Familiar and yet indistinguishable
Obscure shadows of the night
A velvet curtain of impossible depth
I hear everything now
The rhythm of a fan
The quickening of breath
But none sound louder
Than the rattling thoughts tucked inside bones
And the hollow house sounds
That I hear alone.
