Loss

1.

still smooth pillows
always cold
my half-empty bed

2.

small wooden box
too heavy
to have ashes inside

3.

grey felt stocking
white paw prints
 — empty this year

4.

don’t touch the pill box
resting on the windowsill
my last piece of him

5.

Back door left open
warm for November
begging winter – wait
