Today, like everyday
You forgot to smile at the mirror
The house waved and waved
You probably didn’t notice!
Buses and cars and people and dogs
The sun was scanning them all
Realization. Oh! I forgot my handkerchief
You missed the drawer’s creaky call
Office work must be served on table
Overeating is your habit
You left the bedroom window open
The room breathes heat
Two arms of an old clock
Move through the day in pain
You gulp a hot sip of water at office
The kitchen refrigerator grumbles. Again!
Projects, files, reports and deadlines
You worry “There’s so much to do”
An empty house, silent and still
Desperately keeps waiting for you.
