Jasper – MP (a poem)

Inspired by photos I saw online today…


A little house, dark blue

Sadness lives there
fragments litter the tabletop
junk drawer contents, the front yard

••
A one-eyed cat, orange
expressionless, staring

It’s not saying anything
either

But it knows something

•••
Everything is gone now
nothing left to give a fuck about
but the black rose

Turn all the locks
slap a sign on the door

She doesn’t live there anymore
