MEME FOR LEAVING WORK LATE

That feeling—
you get 
late 
at night 
when you're walking 

with no
soul and far too 
few cigarettes 
left towards
the last lonely
car in the 
shrewdly landscaped lot—shivering

like that haggard
and scrawny 
short pack 
of paperback 
maple scraps you're 
presently moving
with fast and
hollow steps past—and wondering

as usual 
while you pass—do I 
appear still
like them?—so young
and so 
dumb and 
so eagerly holding

onto 
what's left
of a few piddling 
scraps 
of those
dead mementos of last year?
