								                 endure not yet
							           A breach, but an expansion,
							     Like gold to ayery thinnesse beate.
									-  John Donne

You know they will go eventually

there will be damp towels empty wineglasses

and maybe rain the evening after and quiet and a house that wants putting to rights

not quite Ariadne on her rock straining to catch a sail on the sun-beaten sea with nothing to fold nothing to put away

open and close the door you made room

time now to make the bed
