you tried to cover up 
the smell of tobacco with mint.
sometimes rum, as well.
the thick smell of lush
lounges on the furniture.
the baseball caps- 
still neatly lined up..
though now, 
they’re hidden away
in the closet
along side laundry clips.
i have some sad news
there are no more birds,
they must have flown away..
i was lying in bed one morning 
thinking about the beach 
and i received a text.
that afternoon i bought 
a pack of cigarettes
and a small white box of mints.
