Today I woke up
and washed the tears off my face
I made myself tea and not in the mug you used last

in fact, I washed it twice, with fresh lemon soap
and scrubbed all the coffee away

and I wrapped it up in the shirt you left in my car
it's all clean now and smells like flowers
not you

so yeah, mug in shirt in the box by the door
Oh, and I vacuumed up the footprints
even the teeny tiny crumbs of dirt
every last atom of you

I threw all the letters
and dead flowers away
and put the box out on the porch

Today I shut the door with a final click
and honey, I opened some windows.
