Daylight saving’s a month away and
You’ve gone dark like these undercover cops
Except that your handler’s your husband, except
You’re buying a house so everyone knows
Where to find you. You won’t drive yet but
This will come. You won’t cry yet but this also
Will come. That’s a long silence, that of one’s
Cowardice. Wear a wire for when you’ll need
Proof and police. I in the meantime ?
Can’t. Can’t face it, can’t name it.
