Together Solitary


She dresses herself for dinner in the same way she might

if she were to be taken.

Oils her body.

Combs her hair.

Slips a dress over naked breasts…

and smears a red over her lips.

At the table

people glance from time to time

waiting for an other to join her.

But she sits

all together





There is a ghost that

joins her this evening.

Some might call it a




has invited it.

Both sit

noisily chewing away at the silence they have this thirty-three years.


they soon hope to

figure it out.
