Turn-down Service

It feels like
you’ve already checked out
of my life,
but you act like
you checked out of a hotel.

If this was so casual,
why are we married?

And if you can’t be bothered
to get me through
this latest tragedy,
if you act like I’m a Labrador
being used what we’re used for,
then maybe you were right all along.

Check out’s at ten.
No exceptions.

Go look
for another hotel room.
This is going to be a home again.
