My Absence in a Box

My task-list these days
Consists of mainly one thing
Pack this room
Pack that up
Until they come
To haul it all away
With some curtains down
And the softenings away
The rooms begin to echo
Almost empty
And devoid of life
Little time to play with words
To tell you where I am
So should I be a little quiet
For a while
You might find me taped
Within a cardboard box
But my absence will be short
If at all
For I cannot stay away
From jotting down my thoughts
