the sound

as i changed out of my bathing suit upstairs
into dry clothes that soon turned wet in my haste to return
to the laughing crowd accumulated in my living room

i could hear the laughter and chaos of 8 wet bodies
shuffling in through one door
the cats scampering away, looking for a safe hiding place -

the sound of happiness and comfort.
