This place is mine

ou have the whole outdoors!
    this place is mine    not yours
stay off the premises
    before goodbye
slips into hello
    just go
because we're done with kisses
    and tête-à-têtes
we're done – that's flat!

even though i can't bear to hear
    knock-knock!        on my door
in the tear-drop silence
    fretful    bothered     you'll arrive humming
as if sans souci were doh-ray-mi
    i'll not burn a candle incensed
nor put up a shrine to honour your absence
    oh horrors
damn you    no!
    never forget
this place is mine
    you've got the whole outdoors!
