Midnight at the Underground

Print Save Become a Fan
The sad, sad strangeness of you lingers.
I feel your little fingers.
They quieted this crevice of the sidewalk;
quieted the din of spit out songs
and the sinking clinking of our drinking.
Here's your unfinished drink
and a cigarette you rolled
looking like nothing so much
as an angel lost in a Warhol film.
kissed you goodbye.
The sad, sad strangeness of you lingers,
returns though you do not.
