What Brian’s Ears Hear


My eyes are closed, but I am here.

Half awake, constant clanking of plastic and metal on hangers.

Nodding off I hear the phones ring, “Hello this is Maggie at the Closet Exchange…”

Laughing with smiles, door chimes clinging, one eye open I see you.

Fading back to a sleepy haze

“What a sleepy dog he is”  I hear you lady, I am still here.

“20 items, all on hangers, First and Last Name,Phone Number and number of items” rocking me to sleep.

Do I hear car keys?!  Time to go home….
