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
