Alone

1996




What is the word for it?
Surrounded by sounds
And people and music
People having their day
Greeting each other
Congratulating themselves
Whispering secrets...
Then laughter...

Someone turns to me as I pass
Looks me up and down
Checks their pocket for change
Smiles sadly at me
Puts it in my hand
And then says,
"Have a good day."
