Familiar [11-1-08]

At night I hear the crickets talking to me,
their black backs
slick and reflective
against the moon.
When the sun comes up,
I leave the doors ajar so
one
by
one
they come inside to hide
under the chests
and in the corners of the room;
their Morse code of clicks and chirps
a metronome
for my writing hand.
