The Couch People: Part 3

And then they were gone.

Leaving us to wonder what
if anything
their presence meant
in the first place.

They left as suddenly as they came
and we with the reality of this lurching over us
had to accept that we too
felt as comfortable with them
as we now felt without.

There was no question:
“Will they come back?”
or
“I wonder what happened.”
just that familiar and damning
sigh of relief.
