Sometimes in our sleep we touch
The body of another woman
And we wake up
And we know the first nights
With summer visitors
In the three storied house of our childhood.
Whatever we remember,
The darkest hair being brushed
In front of the darkest mirror
In the darkest room.

Snakes invade Delaware woman's apartment
MIDDLETOWN, Del., Oct. 13 (UPI) -- A Delaware woman said she vacated her home after discovering at least six baby rat snakes in her bathroom, bedroom and burrowing under her rug.
Gladys Dressner, 72, of Middletown said she first encountered two of the 8-inch snakes when she opened the bathroom door to find them staring at her Sept. 1, The (New Castle/Wilmington, Del.) News Journal reported Monday.
"They just laid there and didn't move," she said.
She said the reptiles slowly became more bold, at one point slithering across her bed sheets after she had retired for the evening.
"I flung it off of me and screamed," she said.
Dressner vacated her Hampstead Court apartment and stayed in a motel while Denton, Md., company Critter Control worked to remove the snakes and apartment complex managers worked to prepare a new unit for her.
Dan Santuchi, the Critter Control employee who removed the snakes, said the woman was not in any real danger from the non-venomous snakes, which do not have fangs.
"They pose no real threat, even to children," Santuchi said. "They just get pretty big when they get to their mature, natural size."
He said all of the snakes were less than one month old.
The Howling Hell
Sometimes I walk around the city with my headphones in, but I feel that I'm missing the sounds of the city. The clatter of cars & buses & construction & breaking stuff coheres if you relax your hearing. It becomes a kind of cavernous room-tone.

bee rests on
railing corner rain
drops from treetops
plink rust into
limply lash laurel
taller trees were
fronds as fists
stagger of ferns
lines slick licorice
no quiet in this
what falls in place
