Joint Custody

by Donal Mahoney

You were gone
when I got home

at midnight
from a double shift.

Now you’re back,
two years later.

I had no idea
where you went

so I packed up
and got a room.

Long ago,
I begged you

not to leave
but that was then.

You can keep
the house, the car.

I'll come by
some starry night

when the moon is bright
and you're asleep.

I promise not to
wake the dogs.

When you get up
you'll find

I used my key
to take the kids.
