Hooking up with your Ex

When you get up out of the bed

I feel my body suggesting that this hurts

That we are being abandoned

So I snuggle up with it 

And remind it 

Of all the little pleasures of our routine

The way we spend our mornings alone

My body and I

There will be deep breaths

There will be a hot cup of tea

And my journal

There will be birds

And frogs

And crickets

Singing outside all the open windows

There will be the little cat

Who has been impatiently waiting for us to wake up

And there will be love, as much as we want

In fact the love is here now

In this bed where you are not

There is no need to call after you

Or long for you to stay

When you have reason to go

So it’s a beautiful morning 

Still, the petulant animal of my body 

Insists that it must have 

The animal of your body

And makes a little pearl out of your leaving

To bring out in the bath later in the day 

To show it to me and say I told you so
