Little Earthquakes

I found out on the news this morning that the little temblor I felt was a 4.4 magnitude earthquake, at 4:04 AM. Wow, now that's what I call precision.

The rattle of doors
and windows wakes me at four
in the morning. I
sit up and listen to the
darkness. Intruder?
With a sigh of relief I
realize that it’s
just an earthquake. I pull
up the covers and sleep.
