Our Sojourning Silhouettes


our sojourning silhouettes


dancing on the walls

between pastelled flowers

in the softest firelight


conjoined under

a single umbrella

tasting fallen vapor

travelling ever onward


waiting at the train station

like the old romantics

we thought we were

spiraling into that

cliché abyss


and I had to cry

until I could forget

that all I'll ever see

is your silhouette

sojourning somewhere else

The End
