It’s a little smaller
and a bit more expensive

And the floors are vinyl wood
tile not tightly wound carpet

Everything from the old apartment
fits in here except the double shelves

My living room work tables (poetry
binders, CDs) line the long not short wall

And the queen-size bed has two sides
touching walls for walk-around space

The closets are even more crowded
but she still has hers and I mine

And she again has her own bedroom
to get dressed and made-up for work in

And there is a kitchen sink for her to
brush and wash up without man germs

So I guess we’re happy here living
our together and separate lives

In the back third of a duplex
for all of two weeks now
