she was maundering in my ear

night after night

daytimes just for the hell of it

wanted out of that city

wanted by the seaside

in truth she really wanted

to leave me

& my ear was catching that

if not the words of it

some sense she’d go missing

during the shift

I paid a guy a hundred or so

to move our shit

throwing in the typer

her clothes my rags

him asking is this it?

looking at the furniture

kitchen bathroom bedroom

yeah man I got the important

to arrive start over again

& yes

she never quite got there

but I had the important
