    I look over, & in those blurry eyes
    I cannot help but see an outline
    Of you, half-reclining, a tie,
    Across your stomach, your
    Perfectly manicured pocket
    Square beneath the terracotta
    Pate of head.

    It wasn’t you after all. It was
    Brown sofa, broken up, white vase,
    A decorative plate.

    Myopic—— that’s what you were
    Amongst Kampala nights spread out
    —— head-first, they fell towards
    The edge of lake ——

    —— and didn’t drown, didn’t die——
    Dramatically fly themselves towards
    Reflective mists between moon borders,
    Smog-smudged as if by someone’s finger
    To ink-black waters.

      I’ve been away far too long to bring out the yellow highlighter. Instead I’d rather say that everything looks like it is where it should be and if I ever come back here I’d definitely like to spend some time reading your thoughts. Very impressed

      Your punctuation of this is pretty neat I think, it's got energy and urgency and grit and vigor because of the flow. I like the fragmentation of it and the abstract personification though I sense your apartment and my apartment would be quite different and in a sense that keeps me back but also makes the poem more about this narrator (after all, why should it be about me) so I dig and admire her, though can offer no literary comment on how she decorates the interior. You do have style 😊
