Choices

I
They don’t live here anymore.
The house is empty, up for sale.
The cats have disappeared.
They’re emigrating to Australia.
Life, they say, is better there.
What can one say?
This country kicks everybody out.
You can only have
a certain piece of old this or old that
to keep your heart intact.

 

They don’t live here anymore.
They won’t die here anymore.

 

II
Something in this place
& something in our lives
hold us back.
We can’t leave them behind.
