Bags filled and resting in the hall.
Key abandoned on the kitchen table.
Door standing wide
inviting vacuity to witness the zephyr of our hostility.
The shadow of a figure
bent with the weight of desertion
stalks in the corner awaiting the passing of emotion.
It has to be over soon;
This too shall pass.
A small boy cowers unnoticed.
His future imminent dissolution all but certain.
And the frogs fell from the sky.
