He Moved In

And all of a sudden
My house is full of coffee,
And mint scented shampoo,
And there are cuff links on the coffee table.

I now change in the bathroom
After showering, and no longer
Sing as loud as I can as the water
Drip drip drips down my back.

I mistakenly pick up 3 forks, not 4,
And I lock the door before he is home
Forgetting we’re not all safely inside yet.
And “we’re” now includes him.

People always say “home is not where you are,
It’s who you’re with”.
In that case,
I don’t think I’m home anymore.
