Empty Clothes Hangers

The furnace is on, pushing up hot air.
Unless you put your hand over the vent
the flow of warmth is imperceptible.

The closet door is wide open.
All shirts and other apparel have been removed.
It is an empty closet with plastic hangers.

Warm air from the furnace brings them to life,
clacking against one another in the otherwise
quiet bedroom.

Our bags are packed for Paris.
