empty house – colorless tv

Standard

Small Moon
Howard Nemerov
Coming home on a summer night
To the empty house – it’s like being
On colorless TV, on the stage set
For Return of the Grand Insomniac;
It is to watch your life as it would be
Without you: the old druggist in the darkroom
Developing someone else’s negatives.
