i wake in darkness. the dream evaporates before i can grasp the details - something about you being there in the absolute quiet of my home when i first turn the key. then when i flick the switch everything that loves an empty room - dust mote, angel, hourglass, shadow-play - settles and disappears. so it turns out that what we thought of as soul is mostly sound; not song, but like a memory of birds or running water, the flicker and dip of an oar, a cry on the wind that might be nothing, peregrine heart, footfall, leaf-fall, silence.
