Plant purple pansies in the box out front.
Call that boy about the grass.
Eat dinner in the captain’s chair
Across from the wide window.
Play a little jazz on the clock radio.
That’s what I’ll do.
Write the thank you notes.
Clean out the closet.
Carry it all to that church around the corner.
Fall asleep on the leather couch.
Wake after midnight to the sound of my own breath.
That’s what I’ll do,
When I come home without you.
