A Relocation Problem | A Poem by Donal Mahoney

We’ve moved
my wife and I from home
to the last place

we’ll ever live and she
wants to know why
I’m sitting around

not helping to unpack.
So I tell her the problem
which is her problem too

but she keeps unpacking.
I’m not at home, I tell her,
but I’m not here either.

Not to worry, I say.
I’ll let both of us in
when we arrive.
