During the day,
with Tony gone,
the house used to be quiet and still

Sometimes there was music
or the insistent meow meow
of a fat cat overly concerned
about the state of her food dish

But, as a general rule,
there was silence

there's always a quick
mysterious bang, bang, bangs
terrifying whumps
and incoherent but sweet
babble boo bub blu blah boo bee

the soundtrack of my life
has changed
