the hungry place

in the hungry place
a noise reverberates
in darkness

between the walls
a voice cries out
then hushes itself
listening

it howls
into spaces
no other voice trembles
and imagines the echoes
are a friend

there is a friend
that sticks closer than a brother
and sometimes I think
that friend is just the echo
of my sing-song voice
in the hungry place
