Cold Dark Hole

I know that the Cold Dark Hole in my ceiling
Is watching,
Judging,
Disapproving of all the living I’m doing right in front of it
In a warm, inviting apartment that is
Full of love and my dog and my friends.
The Cold Dark Hole pretends to impassively look down,
But it’s empty,
and cold,
and dark,
and it knows it will be fixed one day
and that will be the last day of it’s existence.
Until then,
The Cold Dark Hole
Will just watch me live
and I will continue to ignore it.
