the couch

because I’m a couch, kind’a guy
the dent I didn’t make on the other side of it
makes me miss you
this house, days after you have gone
is a lump, for that dent you left in it
it only took a few hours
to miss you coming up the hall
and doing that look, you did, for that side of the couch
the quiet chatter of your jowl, because we worked out that ‘barking’
at 2am was not a good thing
I thought I taught you that
nope. . . you taught me that. . . quiet, respectful, request
so as not to wake Her
She misses you something much larger
than that dent I’m now looking at
I tell Her, it was time
I tell Her, you are in a better place
She misses you something much larger
than that part of the couch, that from here will always be your space
in the dent you made on that side of it
in the dent you made on me
Zoe.
