Table for One


i recall

pale lonely nights

spent in silence

staring through cracks

between the blinds

lights dimmed

listening to voices creep

through the walls

sealed off


surrounded by


nameless faces

haven’t spoken to another

going on three days

doesn’t seem

to bother me much

i take a seat at the table

offer myself a drink

and remark upon the woeful


ill fortune

of our companionship
