If you’re not here to love me,
then why is your coat on the hook?
Strangers. You have to earn a place
for your shoes, neatly paired if you choose.
A peace offering would do, possibly
breakfast. Eggs for pancakes, bacon in abundance.
Wine has been used, as recompense.
If you leave it in the rack,
I’ll drink it in the bath at two in the morning.
