You opened the door for me
and said you'd make me something to eat.
I hugged my knees in your armchair
and I stared at the wall.
I could hear you in the kitchen,
bumping into things.
Maybe it's not such a lousy world after all.
I pretend that I'm asleep
because I'm scared you'll make me leave.
You turn out the lights and you disappear
at the end of the hall.
The Christmas tree glows blearily
like a nightlight by my head.
Maybe it's not such a rotten holiday after all.
