Conjunction



(To my wife)

When you are
With me
I stay in
Because there is
No place for me
Anywhere else
I stay with you
Inside our house
Breathing
Your presence

But when you are
Not with me
I stay out
Because there is
No space left
Inside the house
I stay out
Because the house
Is full
Full of emptiness
Full of your absence.
