lyrics

The screen door slams and I’m upstairs. Heavy footsteps on the landing. I’m in the tub hiding, the curtain closed, the baby on my knee. What’s left for me? As far as I can see, through this plastic liner, the hazy image of a friend, the sound of dresser drawers opening. Two suitcases packed, a car seat for the baby are all that’s left for me. He turns the key and leads us down the driveway, out of the lion’s den and into the lion’s maw, or so it seemed to me then. Purple bruise on my wrist, rug burns on my knee. Nothing to see, nothing to see but all that’s left for me.

My husband puts his hand through the window. "I’ll be damned if this happens to me." He throws his weight against the door—an empty room, clothes on the floor. Now he sits. And he thinks. "There’s nothing left, nothing left for me."
