In the Company Of

alone in the company of birds pecking on dried leaves and fallen lemons. in the company of cars breezing through the freeway, occasionally honking, and one with boisterous teenagers yelling their hearts out. in the company of strange noises between the walls and up there on the ceiling. in the company of the wind gently flapping the open blinds. in the company of a tenacious fly trapped between the wire mesh of the kitchen exhaust. being alone in a cold brick house could really drive one to insanity if not for the quirks of life within and from the outside that brings sanity back to the dining table.
