Old Habits

Your blouse rests
where it always has,
draped on top the kitchen chair.
We’ve changed homes since you’ve gone,
but it still sits in the same position
of the table
that it always has.
Sometimes, we wash it,
to keep it clean.
It’s silly of us –
really –
who washes a blouse
that’s no longer worn?
