*based on a photo by Dianne Arbus

They are always so impenetrable.


A dead stare at the wall.


Her drink


some half-empty prop.


And the cigarrete...


Still holding a torch


but for what?


 


No--


my gaze will not be met.


And she will walk out the door.


And the clues


she will leave


a certain dead end.


And the cigarette will smolder


and the smoke


will follow its trail--


to nothingness.

A real forlorn feel to this, follow to nothingness, what is nothing?
