quiet house

i grew up in a quiet house
with all the doors shut

 

i was quiet to begin with, but
the windows were shut too

 

in stratified silence, sometimes i could
see light trickling through the blinds
bird calls carried on the breeze

 

and if i leaned into the window
i could smell the green
