AN EMPTY HOUSE (Poem by Dan Collins)



Regret is one thing, but
when the lock turned
behind me and the
line of the door jamb
crack disappeared,
the lights went black
and nothing moved
on the other side
of the laced up
windows. Board
by board, tile by tile,
your little house
is dismantled.
If I had known we would
be sorting your things,
nothing could stop
this poem burning down.

AN EMPTY HOUSE (Poem by Dan Collins)


Regret is one thing, but

when the lock turned

behind me and the

line of the door jamb

crack disappeared,

the lights went black

and nothing moved

on the other side

of the laced up

windows. Board

by board, tile by tile,

your little house

is dismantled.

If I had known we would

be sorting your things,

nothing could stop

this poem burning down.
