GOODNIGHT

picking up
what you
put down

one after
another

the days
the same

year gone

goodnight
goodbye

next time
there will be
more

next time
there will be
the same

soft lines
and almost crimes
the curve
of your sides
olive skin
dimpled smile

come over
and over
again and
again

too little
to keep, to hold
to wait
patiently

making a family
seems so
far away

sinking into
the back
round the bend
maybe i’ll see you
again.

maybe i’ll die
before i can say
goodbye

deceiving drifts
come in through
the window

closer,
farther

those times we slept
before saying goodnight

lonely drives
by your side
homeward bound
this time around

wipe everything
clean
me and my
things

reprise

breakfast
in the kitchen

sun
showers,

sun
rise

reprise

goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
