It’s been tense under this roof that’s for sure, though the pressure and angst that it usually holds is wonderfully absent. These days the atmosphere is silent with awkwardness.
I noted yesterday afternoon that your house keys have been removed from their usual resting place atop the refrigerator. They’ve been nesting in that very spot since you left us and only now they’ve relocated suspiciously?
Yes, I can take the hint dear brother, though what you supposed I was going to do there is beyond me since the house is dormant and void of any furnishings or electricity. It did cross my mind to venture there if I needed some down time or just check that everything was alright and in order. Maybe collect a rose or two for your gravestone but alas this shan’t be the case.
