i think of you when

drinking beer alone, writing

poems you will never read, watering

the cactus on my windowsill, folding

clothes in the laundry mat, sweeping

the fake wooden floors, painting

my nails a deep burgundy, rereading

books you recommended, measuring

one serving of pasta, avoiding

your Facebook, listening

to love songs, calling

you and hanging

up
