Last night

Last night
I heard from the basement
darts thunking solidly against the dartboard and occasionally the wall
Rock Band on the TV
squeals of delight and groans of despair
voices teasing, challenging, giggling, laughing
good-natured arguments over prowess or knowledge
low rumbles from the boys and high-pitched retorts from the girls
sugar-fueld fun and the energy of youth
brothers, sister, friends, cousins--boys and girls together
staying just a little longer
last night

  1. I love the line: staying just a little longer. In so few words, it says so much. Your slice makes life at your house sound cozy, safe, fun, comfortable.
