Table for One

distinctly

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

isolated

surrounded by

unacquainted

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

regrettable

ill fortune

of our companionship
