Fugitive No More

Fugitive No More, illustration by Kruttika Susarla

You would be pleased to know
that the evidence has been removed—
one forgotten earring,
ten strands of curly black hair,
two good morning notes,
and an origami heart on the fridge.
You are now sufficiently expunged.
The bedcovers have been straightened
and the crime scene
is sanitised.
