Conscious

Standard

leap into
the sound calling
it is not doors
clasping frames
or footsteps on gravel
giving the listener
a sense of direction
it is not laughter
of conversation
or external music
bringing melodic
enjoyment
it is not cheering
of a crowd
during special occasions
or sewn strips
of creaking houses
it is our ability
to understand
our conscious

-Jennie Nawrocki
