Vacancy

November 29, 2011

In absentia

you’ve moved my furniture around

though the bed is wedged where it’s always been

and the chair claims the same spot of hardwood floor

the usual view through the window seems 

unhinged

it’s been weeks-

you may as well have moved in

my key slides  smoothly

yet  I turn the knob like a burglar

I sit at the dinner table where there’s no  room

I could speak to the  landlord

but

this vacancy can’t get  evicted.
