THE ABSENTEES

There are gaps

there are blanks

in the house

of my life

there's a face

nothing more

something gone

from my life

She was here

he was there

in the rooms of my life

there's a place

for them both

in the words of my life.

There are gaps

there are blanks

in the house of my life
