Spare Room

by | Issue #3, Issues

I will embroider us together, into every secret seam
turn the bedsheet inside out
and leave it to fade to dust in the spare room.
A surprise for when I’m gone.
And then you will see
How we were made and unmade and could never be undone.
And you will know
How much you were loved.
