Echo, echo, echo (location)

I didn’t feel alone today

the minute I awoke…

It’s just that I lacked company,

so to myself I spoke

–and there’s the rub,

and them’s the breaks,

awaiting some reply–

no voice intoned,

no, just my own,

exhaling in a sigh…

 

I didn’t note

a lack of love,

enough to raise alarm,

no rounded shoulder

~hanging over~

swinging, empty arms,

 

and later on

–I didn’t miss

a second, as I strolled,

deserted shores

no, all the more

grit to chafe my sole…

 

I didn’t wish

to share my dish

when dining then at night,

I washed my plate

no aftertaste

from unexpected bites.

 

I didn’t feel alone today

the minute I awoke…

It’s just that I lacked company

so to myself I spoke.
