solo

it happens after they leave

in ones-twos-threes

mumbled farewells

hugs 

exchanging gratitudes for what went on here

rumbling cars and voices

decrescendo into the kind of

silence

that leaves me groping for my way

through this lighted room

metronomes of heart and clock

untidy rhythm

stumbling over each other

aloneness without

matching aloneness

within
