Jen Doesn'T Live Here Anymore - Poem by Jennifer Granville

Thank you for stopping by,
It’s been a while since you have come to call.
And you brought a cake!
To share?
How thoughtful,

But, Jen doesn’t live here anymore.

No, I am not mistaken.
Yes I know just who you mean;
Who you meant.
That girl called Jen.
May I keep the cake anyway?
Yes, I am certain,

Jen does not live here anymore.

Oh I don’t know…
She packed up a good many things,
With ruddy cheeks and that smile she used to have
Remember her smile?
And went away with the most curious look
Of hopefulness…

But I haven’t heard from her
Not in a long while, now.
Though some pallid creature did come by
To pick up some of the clutter she left behind
Coats and such, the winter does get so cold here…
No, I don’t know how you can reach her;

I don’t know if any one does, or anyone can.
I think she is just gone.
Is it chocolate, the cake I mean?
Yes you are right, that was her favorite
I’m surprised you remembered!
How should I know where she’s gone?

Why would you care anyway?
There are a million more where she came from,
And a million more, far better than she.
I’m not being rude, and I am not wrong,
I’m just telling you what I know...

That Jen doesn’t live here anymore.
