TABLES

I smile

no one at the table

knows

I’m hurt

No one comes to my aid

as they laugh

and make light

of my character

I smile

and they don’t know

I’m crushed

no defense

no allies

no safe harbor

i’m adrift

in a lonely sea

I thought I was

one of many

but I’m alone

here

at the table

smiling.
