3 AM

Can't sleep, wanting you
Ducks sing to a silent phone
Its glow reflects tears.

Its glow reflects tears
Inappropriate. We have
no relationship.

No relationship?
"Count the stars with me," you say.
Shh! nightingale trills.

Shh! Nightingale trills
Without you, every note
is flat and alone.

Is flat and alone
my always? You, far from me.
Can't sleep, wanting you.
