'The Comfort of the Last to Leave' is an image made in response to Philip Larkin's bleak 1958 poem 'Home is so sad' - thoughts on the return to an empty house.

 

Home is so sad. It stays as it was left,
Shaped to the comfort of the last to go
As if to win them back. Instead, bereft
Of anyone to please, it withers so,
Having no heart to put aside the theft
And turn again to what it started as,
A joyous shot at how things ought to be,
Long fallen wide.

Philip Larkin (English 1922-85)
