Love Poem: Alibi

Alibi


in the end, we were there-not there
two present absentees 
sharing an apartment vacated by a relationship 
and the worst kind of loneliness
   - feeling solitary next to someone
partners in the crime of abetting mutual misery
though neither of us can really be linked 
to the crime scene, can we? 

we’ve got each other’s alibi
