The Loneliness Of Metros In New York

There is loneliness tonight
The kind that descends
when 2 ppl part
the loneliness of silence
after long conversation
the loneliness of a subway ride at night
with a scant crowd
empty seats
and empty faces

We are arbitrarily together tonight,
I & these strangers,
pretending not to look
passengers on the same cart
taking us to boxed homes
in different beds
and different places
