Room and I


By M.B. Meme

I go on
and on
every day,
curled up
and lolling,
milling about
in this room,
this room
in this house.

Morning
day
and night,
they pass
pass
through
this room,
through me.

And
left behind,
I and my room
remain
for the house
scattered
in
pieces,
changing on and on
in looks
color
and smell.
