In an Empty House.

the house was empty when he got home
no one was there to help him unpack his things
it was a studio he rented from an apartment complex
in ohio he only moved there to be closer to his friend
alex who was going through divorce and bought
a green bicycle alex was his best friend he had a nice
house and a good job and a girlfriend he did not have
any of those things yet he was new to the area and
his last girlfriend dumped him for a sumo wrestler
who was only in nebraska for a week he hated long
nights in autumn when the roof leaked and he could not
hear himself think sometimes he wished he could think about
deep things like his friend becky but
whenever he found room to think
he didn’t know what to say afterwards.
