Rent

I can’t tell you
how much space
I’ve leased
(in the mind),
but somehow
he keeps
paying rent
and every month
by the fifth
the check
comes in,
that I can’t really
justify wanting
to let go of
this presence,
that keeps filling
up more and more
spaces
(in my head),
that I fully expect,
though I’ve
never raised rent,
that I’ll wake up
to find (one day),
that he’s completely
moved in, with name
on the deed;
this tenant,
I’d never evict.
