Moving Day

I watch

as you pile clothes over your arm.

The bed that once moved

with entangled bodies

is now still.

Your ring –

a symbol of our love is tossed on the bureau.

Brown boxes stacked

in the corner

await their departure.

In the living room

an ebony piano

like a menacing omen

reiterates our differences.

Soon someone else’s memories

will make their home here.
