Floor level is less interesting
Fewer blankets and pillows are piled into corners
for you to collapse upon.
Crumbs aren’t cleaned up by a searching tongue.
No floor level greeter welcomes me home
No floor level sniffer seeks a snack of his own
Floors stay cleaner: no foot prints at the door,
no water puddles down the hall.
Sometimes I still see you from the corner of my eye
and once again, I say good-bye.

Thanks, Amanda. It’s been a sad week here.
