broken bulb

“It’s like the light in you has gone out”
I nod through tears
Maybe it will come back
When i watch Les Miserables
For the 17th time
Or when the lava lamp finally settles
Or when i find that all the towels in the house
Are completely dry
Maybe just
When the marmalade gets sticky
Enough for me to remain conscious.
