It’s quiet
It’s nap time and it’s quiet and
It’s taken me almost twenty minutes to realize
That it’s quiet
The three year old is asleep
That’s still normal
The five year old is also asleep
That was normal
Two years ago
It probably means she’s sick
I’m sitting her e
Debating whether I should include
An allusion to the stunning of pigs prior to slaughter
It’s quiet all right
Unnaturally quiet
Way too quiet
