“Alone” by J. Tsai


The humming of the refrigerator generator
Vibrating the magnets on the front.

The whoosh of another car driving pass in the rain
Tire hitting the wet pavement.

The murmurs and voices coming from below
Downstairs family of four after dinner.

Trickling sounds of water along the kitchen pipes
Neighbors turning on their faucets.

No sounds made by me.
