Whale

—reply to an email from N.

That’s so close to what I
feel now, just us in a house 
that housed J & J
L & A 

and to a certain extent 
one of A’s sons
 
their absence

I feel it’s volume more. 
we carom off walls of rooms
stuffed with memories
caught in their void 
and wonder
about the future of this house
without us. 
we wander
through it.
…………………. we’ve wandered
through it 
swallowed
like Jonah in his whale
