Listening Alone

The sun's descent through tangled trees,
rests on rooftops and falls behind.
Leaving shadows,
It is gone.
Listening for sounds outside,
snow falls silently on wet ground.
Cars return
doors open and close
shades are pulled down
lights flick on,
as shadows move inside.
He leaves his shade up
to watch the lingering light.
Listening for sound,
he hears his breath
he hears his ears
buzzing.
