Ceiling fan

hums

in the dead of night.

Its twisting breath

wipes away

the stale heat and bring forth a moment

of clarity.

The fan

keeps me company

as the world

outside the pallid door

to a small, boxed-in room,

becomes distant

and void.

That fan,

that ceiling fan,

speaks softly

while the world sleeps,

and I’m left alone,

in the darkness.
