ear to the ground, to the phone, a glass
pressed against the door, against a safe.
there is no between to read when the lines
are blank, when the soil is absent a rumble,
when the clicks come arbitrary and faint.

report but a vague and opportune void,
the existence of things you won't say, a white
flag tinged with frail and futile optimism.
