I get on with the shadows of the night

Cable Bay, January 2021, Sylvie GE

I get along better with the shadows of the night

they slip without making noise

 without a crash  in their bed

than with neighbors opening their doors noisily

and talk on their phone in a loud voice

that resonates even in my kitchen

their words coming out of their mouth like boards from a factory

they mean nothing and  ruin me

Who would have thought?

Who would have thought ?

That we would be content

to only see shadows pass

or even just the sun?

Who would’ve believed that?

That he would miss her flaws 

or would take pleasure in the little things

boiling water, a sip of tea

in little moments that meant nothing just a few days ago.

Then the world turned  upside down
