Eating Alone

Beautiful woman,

what are you doing?

Tucking yourself in at night,

lighting candles

and tracing your hipbone.

 

Messy woman,

what are you doing?

Bathing at midnight

to rise at dawn,

your old routine overthrown.

 

Beautiful woman,

what are you doing?

Dates with the dark,

a bottle to yourself

and eating alone.

 

Messy woman,

what are you doing?

Losing count of your lists,

your outgoings,

and strange names in your phone.

 

Beautiful woman,

what are you doing?

Waking up to the cold

side of the pillow

and dancing on your own.

 

Messy woman,

what are you doing?

Wringing your hands

of loneliness

and building yourself a home.
