Negative Space

In the space, you left behind

The cat wails

I putter

Trying to organize my heart

And your clutter

Marvel buttons in a pile to the left

Stones and fossils to the right

I open the drapes

You preferred drawn

Pull a rubberband around

The colored pencils

A stray sock

Down the laundry chute

In the space

You left behind

I build, with your things that remain

An outline of you
