He

He left just a little too quickly this morning

coffee pot still brewing, dining-room a mess

as if He had never been there (with me)

before

or ever

a trick of the mind

perhaps, but, how can I be so sure

when his imprint on the bed

lingers still

long after the scent of his cheap cologne

has been washed away
