To Boldly Go

She said we needed some space.
I said I need you to look away from your space

so that I may slip in, undetected, into your space.
I was never to be trusted.

None of the panties in the back of your drawer
appear to fit you anymore.

I now see how you live
now that I am gone.

I imagine how you must be renting out drawer-space
to fat chicks in order to cover the rent.

How you can look better to me
when I am gone

clearly upsets

past simple home
