i ran to the second floor closer
frantic, in search of my coat
by the time i’d returned to the living room
you had removed all your clothes

such an act
so out of character
wearing a smile, timidly
losing all sense of all space or time
i’d forgotten where i had to be

i awoke late and ran for the bus stop
took a cab, then took a train
pushed my way through the streets of manhattan
through the crowds of a new year’s parade

you were cold
and seeming unfeeling
you shied from my hand on your knee
where we two part in a parking garage
you left with a kiss on my cheek

i was speaking
or maybe just staring
at nothing after my one call
those i reached claimed that i seemed to be
one with glob
or likely no one at all

i still recall when my head hit the dashboard
my first time embraced by the dark
now i sit til my eyes can’t stay open
my head hits the pillow
i’m gone

i returned to the second floor closet
the weather demanded no coat
stood alone in the living room thinking about
someone that i used to know

in that place where the light shines infrequently
i could once sit, now i don’t
i thought this room was our room
but you left me in search of your own
