lonely places

my neighbour caught me on the kerb
as I was wheeling out the bin
'You must be Lonely!'
she yelled into the wind
as if we hadn't introduced ourselves
and I nodded casually
disposing the hidden sin
and rattling bottles and dog tins
as she continued loud
in her house coat and accent
'I'm used to it you see.
I don't even notice it any more'
announcing to everyone and no one
these things on the nature strip

In a Lonely Place (via Coudal)
