Changing Opinion

We became aware
Of a hum in the room
An electrical hum in the room
It went mmmmmm

We followed it from
Corner to corner
We pressed our ears
Against the walls
We crossed diagonals
And put our hands on the floor
It went mmmmmm

Sometime it was
A murmur
Sometimes it was
A pulse
Sometimes it seemed
To disappear
But then with a quarter turn
Of the head
It would roll around the sofa
A nimbus humming cloud

Maybe it’s the hum
Of a calm refrigerator
Cooling on a big night
Maybe it’s the hum
Of our parents’ voices
Long ago in a soft light
Long ago in a dim light

Maybe it's the hum
Of changing opinion
Or a foreign language
In prayer

Maybe it's the mantra
Of the walls and wiring
Deep breathing
In soft air
