a man works
at the computer
in a corner
sometimes forgets
man is alone
neon’s intangible

a man looks
at the time
in the corner
sometimes forgets
it’s late for home
nobody’s waiting

a man drives
back to home
basal ganglia in-charge
sometimes forgets
radio’s not on
none to complain

a man listens
the refrigerator hums
no other sounds
sometimes forgets
his shoes are still on
the bed’s his own

a man watches
night slowly fall
tells the man
sometimes forgets
he likes it all
he’s not sad that’s all

a man lies
his heart a stone
tries to sleep
never forgets
man is alone
the end’s far

Go ahead, I know you're itching to say it...
