Sometime After Midnight

Everyone is coupled
and he looks in the reflection of a mirror
to see if she's going to acknowledge
his eye contact.

He's thinking that for now
maybe tonight
she will be the warm body
and he'll feel alright

so his chocolate eyes
indifferent and searching
peer over a vodka soda
unexpectedly wistfully alone

and she walks out
on the arm of another.
