In case the sun does not rise
Over Taos Mountain
The day will remain dark
Hard to see

In case I do not return
My chair will remain empty
My words unspoken
My thoughts unexplored
My bed un-slept in
My house will echo
My absence

In case I do not return
There will be a tiny hole
In the fabric
You might need a microscope to see
A great big hole
For me
There will be something missing
For I will no long be
