walking back

footsteps approach the landing

then recede into rooms

doors closed, music, podcasts

recordings

 

walking back

turning an album of voices

into laughter, streamers

drape the staircase

 

further back

sun rests on a carpet,

a child reads

as the volume drops

bird-whistle

the only sound
