Some Lapse

The only respite we each have

from the broken community

around us in the day and the light

is the silence and the darkness

of the night. Yes, though

everyone knows this, each

secretly and foolishly forgets it

in the process of avoiding the solitude.

Alternatively, that lapse of consciousness

may inappropriately find itself

extending said brokenness

into the peace of the night

for some other forgetful foolish ones.
