Dining Alone

By | 8 June 2020

The sky watches like yesterday.
The stars haven’t finished predicting.

The door doesn’t drag on—
A fly, sprawled, pushes to enter.

The candles bruise their souls,
the wind, outside, refrains

from stepping in once more.
Dinner comes, doesn’t know where

to begin. The windows can’t eat.
Their faces, thirsting for a glass

of water, nearly break
into a pitch. I raise my hand

to the glass,
picking up gravity.
