7.Coming Home to Die.
Picked up by your wife
In the car you used to drive,
Let in your front door
& there you see
(As you had been told)
That your bed has been moved
Down a floor.
That afternoon
You go to sit
In your garden
By the sea
&, wrapped in a shawl,
You watch your wife
In the kitchen
(Naked as you asked)
Making tea.
