The Sounds She Made

by Jason Halpert

The sounds she made were big.

Whenever we were together,

wherever we were, her sounds

filled the spaces between us

so that there was no room for anything

but her.

The scuffling of her shoe

the creaking of her chair

the scratching of her pencil across paper—


She, Wendy Morthorpe
