ONLY A LONER

ONLY A LONER
MOVES TO LIVE
IN A CITY
FOR SIX MONTHS
AND MAKES
NOT A FRIEND
HE WILL MISS
WHEN HE IS
GONE AGAIN.

THOUGH THERE WAS
ONE, SHE WOULDN’T
BE STAYING EITHER.
SHE’D BE LEAVING
BEFORE HE DOES.

ONLY A LONER
SAYS TO HIMSELF,
“WELL THAT MAKES
THINGS EASIER.”

AND OF COURSE
ONLY A LONER
WRITES A POEM
ABOUT
BEING A LONER
BECAUSE IT IS
ALL HE HAS
TO FEEL GOOD
ABOUT.

ONLY A LONER
WOULD DO THAT,
BUT I WOULDN’T
KNOW
ANYTHING ABOUT
THAT, WOULD I?
