A NIGHT OUT
(3/11/18)

you need
to go
somewhere

I understand

you need
"to live"
as you are
wont
to say

because
living with me
is apparently
not enough
anymore

I hope
that you
have fun

that maybe
one evening
away
will help you
to endure
another week
at home

in the
beginning
a quiet
home life
was all
that you wanted

we all
change

I know

dwindling
mortality
will do that

perhaps
I have changed
as well

because
as I
turn off
the light
tonight

get into
bed

alone

I am glad
that you're
gone
