APPROACHING PATHOS
(11/24/16)

the season
is upon us

holiday plans
much the subject
of conversation

difficult
for the single
folks

especially
those
who only wish
to be left
alone

feigning interest
without evoking
a well meaning
invitation
is a difficult
line
to toe

sometimes
a silent retreat
becomes
the only
option of solitude

shaking heads
waving their
incredulous
goodbyes
