Day 6: April Poem-a-Day

Prompt: Write a night poem

complete silence
except for the A/C
occasionally clearing its throat
and the mechanical bird on my wrist
marking every second with a
barely audible chirp
and the refrigerator  awaking from its nap
to blow its cold breath on coffee creamer and tuna sandwiches
complete silence
except for the hushed ache
of working late
tonight
