quarantine: day 19

she gets up in total silence
before the sunrise
empty is the space beside her
unconsciously, she sighs

in the kitchen she stands at the window
her garden awaits the sun
she puts the kettle on
another morning of coffee for one

she has 2 cups of coffee
she has 2 cigarettes
showers, throws some clothes on
this is as good as it gets

in the living room
she overfeeds her fish
her mind is far away
her heart beats out a wish

the room fills with gray light
the sun has risen once more
the mantle clock ticks loudly
she longs for his knock at the door
