Two Bed, Two Bath


I push
our old vacuum
down the hall;
we will go off 
somewhere 
else, leaving
our echoes behind,
speaking softly
in the shadows
of these rooms,
waiting 
in the windows
facing the sea,
until someone new
hears the whispers
in the walls,
sees what it was
we came to see,
before the time
arrived
for us to leave.
