The Spirit of Seriousness

Standard

When the cooling glow ceases
doing what it does, what then?
What then? As we passively
observed the nightmare
of a skyline dribble into night,
the profundity we sought
to force onto every last
little thing that we did –
this suddenly dropped
like a cocktail glass
from the skittish grip
of a plastered socialite.
And I saw the same humor
in both circumstances,
She, too, wanted
to be taken seriously…
