#2,356 Laid Off

& I will become a redundant
pair of Marks tartan slippers
in my time-emptied hallway
of soon-to-be-cleareds –
it is
an easy choice of footwear –
slippable & known –
but not
to go with me [a left pair] –
will peer in that tall looking
mirror at you looking in

all undressed & sagging –
tawdry before & after death
& everything in-between us
without familiar distraction
[by a domestic tripping-up]
