Meetings in the Dark

Watching the reflections of passers-by
in the gathered water of a nighttime rain.
one man scratches the back of his head
holding a cigarette
down near his waist
this could be a silent movie
people talking in the background
being the ruin of that fantasy.

And they scold one another
over and over
talking back and forth
without subtitles
as though a type of entertainment might follow
a subtext
to something
anything
they might truly find unique.
