after a broken wedding

half awake
half asleep
wandering through
empty old streets
cannons
of the shuddering past
sunlight flickering
waves waving past
a girl smiling
something
like all the others
mellifluous voices
and eyes
dance before her
a drink too many
a phone call missed
exhaustingly worried thoughts
unceasing
forgetting
or trying to forget
an angry other
the pressure
of mothers
sad loneliness
all around
