Sonnet of the Everyday by Hank Kalet

Sonnet of the Everyday
By Hank Kalet

Just in case
she didn't see his car was gone
or that he'd emptied the closet
of clothes or
pulled his books from the shelves
or disconnected
the stereo but left
the Technics turntable
she got him
last Christmas
he left her a note
no explanation
just a note to say
so long.
