For a Little While

I can imagine
for a little while
that you haven’t gone.

Maybe you are playing the piano
in the other room –

although that would be quite odd.

Or maybe it’s you typing:
clicking away with such determination –

but no, that too would be really odd.

Or maybe you are reading the paper,
silently, so that there’s only an occasional
rustle of a page turn or maybe
a twap of annoyance as the paper
bends in all the wrong places.

That would make more sense.

But there I go again.
Trying to make sense.

There is no sense here.
You have gone.
I have not.

I can only imagine that for
brief interludes
and not the vast
expanse of eternity.

Maybe that was you
the stair creaking, the footfall
