At night
to be alone in the dark in an apartment
unsettles him.

After their drinks and dinner
others retire to bed.
The tired lights too close their eyes.

All alone sits he quiet
in the dehumanized dark.

Away from him and home
his wife too must be sitting quiet
in the same inhuman dark.

As he dwells on the dark she is in
the dark where he dwells
suddenly turns light
and human.
