By Midday Monday

audio

I put you out of my mind,
pretend you do not exist,

sit in the hallway hiding
from your light and from the rays

suggestions that highlit dust
on the carpet, became shapes

where babies might’ve stayed warm
or could be where a cat sat

if we brought ourselves to bring
home such temperamental guests.

For now small mounds of clothing,
a remote, last night’s dishes,

the unclean and forgotten
weekends we waste in darkness.

One thought on “By Midday Monday

  1. “sit in the hallway hiding
    from your light and from the rays”

    An image that is imprinted in the mind for sure. I feel the absence and disappointment – very nicely done!
