Count days

Count days

Hasten languid hours

Keep busy

Stay active

Work, work, work

Avoid the empty house

 .

Count nights

Patrol abandoned rooms

Shake pillows

Check cupboards

Sit on empty bed edges

Tally lethargic sheep

 .

Count hours

Envisage warm reunions

Mark calendars

Plot, plan

Linger, sigh – wait

Anticipate
