on the quiet avenue

a man cannot walk alone
with his head bowed
in reverence
in peace
in disgust
in agony
in the middle of the night
without attracting notice in words from others
so then he must stop and explain himself
he is not bored
he is not unhappy
he is not in need
of anyone
he must join himself to others
to remain unnoticed
now he has an alibi
which tells the world that all is O.K.
by telling them nothing
let the man be
let me be
let him walk alone in the night
(and if you should have a curiosity of your own)
follow him
into the night
in the other direction
