clocks say

Between loads of laundry, she writes.
Pumpkin bread for a sunny afternoon,
egg salad dinner, boys making noise after sunset.
She holds still on a small couch,
still between key-clicks, word tricks,
a deep inhale of cricket songs, and a single, distant, light.
Clocks say seven minutes to unwind.
