flowers on the table in a jar,
a few have dropped their petals,
A few more brave it on.
Your dress arches, falls
across a chair-back,
Crumpled bills, some pennies and a quarter from
From the hallway where a lamp is on
A radio was playing but the frequency has
Lightning shudders at the window. A hollow
I believe you love me,
