Are you awake?

Are you awake?
Are you lucid?

Do you hear the water?
Water dropping with a rhythm?

Were you startled?
Startled with the wind?

Wind lashing your window blinds?
A siren call in the middle of the night?

Are you numb?
Are you numb from the cold?

Do you hear that sound?
Tick tocks and chimes around?

A door slams.
A phone rings.
Cars tooting.
Mothers shushing.

Are you awake?
