When the pandemic is over

I’ll stop thinking and begin reading

I’ll buy things and stop surfing.

I’ll stop counting but start adding,

I won’t need to ask but will be telling.

When the pandemic is over, I’ll leave home and find one.


emptying the house

a closet with all the checks

he’s ever written

You tell

empty house

you’re listening

and the house

believes you.

with his own god
