ALONE AT NIGHT

To be alone at night 
in the dark in an apartment 
unsettles him.

Others after the drinks and dinner
retire to bed. 

The lights too tired  close their eyes. 

Quiet he sits
in the dehumanized dark

all alone

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.
