Waiting for Crickets

. . . one of you will be out there

singing your loud courtship

with open wings, then

falling asleep in your lover’s arms,

making your little night music

in the midnight void.

–Excerpt from “Waiting for Crickets” in Edges by Donna Pucciani (Purple Flag, Chicago, 2016). First published in Off the Coast.
