\"\"

The child watches
Across the darkened room,
The bed of her parents

Rocks like some storm tossed ship,
The mutters
And the cries

They give out,
Reminds her
Of her grandmother's house,

Where her aunt and uncle
Made similar sounds
As she stood listening

At the door
Of their room.
The child retreats;

The glass of water
Is not that important.
