NIGHT SHROUD
(4/17/17)

the sun
has set

the sky
turning
black

I finally
feel some
relief
from the
day

the darkness
comforts me

the lack
of light
offering
a further buffer
from others

I wait
awhile
before flipping
any switches
indoors

savoring
the isolation
for a few
minutes
more

illumination
only brings
reflections

a crowd
of one

the worst
