quieted dwindlers
pulling long sips
from cold black coffee,
casting shadows 
across one another

in all the wrong ways

when I saw you there
sitting by the window
the light burning across

to say, things that 
could have changed everything

but I held my hands silent

and for the moment,
your words sliced across
my screen, your
image tore through
