monogamy

I can tell you about spaces between walls,
I’ve lived in them –
Not the walls, the spaces:
Rooms.

Tonight, I’m on the toilet,
Seat closed,
Wind blowing vicious outside, howling sounds –
Feet up on the tub, chilling.

Need to egress, get my beer;
I’ve no other company…

Just the sound effects of the racoons in the attic.
