Caring is how they suck you

back in

knocking the door at 2

which feels very a m

when you got work at 6

I had nowhere to go

she cries

& knew

I could rely on you

which is no solace

at all in this growing cold night

so you let her stay

to get home later

after a long day

to find all food half eaten

all booze gone

tv left playing to the empty room

the bath used & discarded

plug & water still in

the whirlwind has gone

but now she knows

how to find you

it is time to move again
