Overnight Stay

This poem was published in the Summer 2012 issue of The Citron Review.

The unattached go unnoticed
in hotel bars and lobbies,
watching couples and
overhearing conversations.
They retreat to their rooms
and fall asleep to the
sound of cable television,
turning up the volume
before drifting off
in order to shut out
the animal noises of
the man and woman
enjoying themselves
in the adjacent room–
while being reminded again
that others are not
spending the night alone.
