“Moving House” by Tami Boehle-Satterfield

You were everywhere –
In the snaking pipes,
In the tunneled vents,
In the swooshing of doors, of windows.
You were in every room,
Every drawer,
Every cabinet.
You were in the painted walls,
The dirt in the cornered floors.
Hard as I tried,
I couldn’t take all of you with me.
