A Séance for Nothing

I held a séance for nothing.
Nothing happened.

No sudden quiet. The flame
never froze. No faceless
presence threatening peace,
no voice from beyond. No,
not one unusual occurrence.
Rocks sat, ants scurried,
Birds dove, people drove.

I held a séance for nothing.
I’m telling you, nothing
happened.
