Wretched Vacancy

Silence unbroken
by dust motes floating
in a single shaft of filtered blue
beaming through a ragged rip
in the old drawn drapery.

Knees pulled to chin,
bare toes gray with grime
save neon pink polish,
chipped and flaking, paired
with purple fingertips and
bright brown eyes burning
holes across the ceiling.

No one is here
as a floorboard creaks overhead.
