Let there be no one
Let there be no one.
Let there be no one there when
You get home. Shut the door.
Prepare your own dinner.
Savor it alone. Have seconds.
Take off your pants. No one is there.
Your words fall on no one so
Say them all, to chair, to lamp.
Sit and think. Grow so good with No one
That Someone is odd. Make good
With your body, next to no one.
Wrap your feet around air.
Sleep with no one. Savor your
kicks and your sounds.
Let your no one bring someone.
Let someone into your house.
Prepare dinner. Split it in half.
This is my lamp. This is my chair.
Two Someone’s with their hands softly
snaking towards each other across a couch.
This is my couch. These are my records.
That is my Mom. Those are my books.
Let your words fall on someone.
Be so good with no one that suddenly
Finally and suddenly
Someone is there.
