have you been half asleep and have you heard voices?

I can hear grumpy wee voices and rattles and constant dropping of toys against the hardwood
I can hear the low murmur of kids PBS shows
he is doing his best with me in this constant state of ill
I have been in the bed since 7pm last night
I was at the antique shop buying old piano rolls
because they spoke to me
and all of the sudden I felt like a shivering wreck of crunchy coughs
it is flu or bronchitis or something funky
but I can't get into my doctor until the morning
So I just stay in this bed
this bed above the play room and
listen to the boys
listen to Joe forge his own way through the day
listen to the subtraction of me
