Can you bring it back here?

 

 

your fantastic machine
hums and it spins
in concentric circles
around the room

and I keep time
on the floor with my toe
while your sister plays
with the dog

your plain white shirt
has stains near the collar
where you cut yourself
shaving last night

and I keep calm
while you stand in the door
while she lets the cat
go out in the night

can you bring it back here?
can you bring it back here?
can you bring it back with you my dear?
