I’ll be back home sometime at night
I won’t run in and I won’t shout “hello”
Not because it’s too late
You just aren’t there

Silently I will enter, I will scatter sneakers
I’ll throw my bag, lean against the wall
It’s like you’ve never been here
Like I dreamed

The walls are still unpainted
Cold in the back, to dumbness
We both had a good time here.
Well, where are you?

Echo question repeated softly
Empty in the apartment, empty in the shower
It just broke once
And don’t fix it…
