Huddled together

in a pile of broken

boxes,

fever reaching full fire.

But no one came to

roust them.

 

“Thank you.” She plunged in.

frozen, weeping,

stumbling over

stray tears

“I have nothing left to lose.”

 

He could fall asleep and

close his eyes

expecting to wake in

the next world.

 

Dimly,

they waited

to set fires

that would burn the

corpses.

 

But when?

 

They wandered.

Strangers

they’d never seen.

So instead they forget

all that’s done.

 

Out of the eventide

they got their

wish.

 

The night

was winning so far.

But you’ll see

who wins in the end.
