A "New" Poem and Linkage Update

I realized today as I was looking though my recent work that I had not posted this poem that followed the two I most recently shared:

Sounds Fall Away

Voices in the hallway,
and a few doors rattle
and shut. Music fades
from across the courtyard,
one TV falls silent.
Footsteps overhead tap
the ceiling, floorboards
creak for a bit.
Sounds fall away
until only the soft whirr
of the fan harmonizes
with the faithful chirp
of the crickets.

The music blog Spoilt Victorian Child has abruptly ceased updating, so I removed the link. I will perhaps replace it with another soon.
