Days of Quarantine

I prayed for the silence of a cat

In the days when the bats returned

After what time I cannot say

Many of us are visitors to our homeland

When the downpours murmured to drizzle

The roads held their breath, waited

Birds in leisure scatter, dogs stilled

On the warm tar that came after

The world stopped, but still hungered.
