The Keening

How is it then, tell me, to truly listen?
It is difficult to pay attention sometimes.
All the noises going on in and out of our bodies.
Maybe it’s as simple as noticing –
slightest sound. Footsteps.
Sometimes someone other than yourself
is there. This is one way to listen:
one keeping still, another waiting.
Little discoveries keening
In their sudden approach.
