DEATH (REVERSED) by Robert Beveridge

Things are stacked against the wall.
Boxes, suitcases, shelves, toys, fans.
The movers will be here next week;
all that is left is to break down those
last essentials for the final night:
bed, computer desk, vodka, mixers,
a single glass. It is easier this time
than last, only one person’s
life packed away, one set 
of belongings on their way
to a new, memory-free place.
