Obscuras


in rooms with fluorescent bulbs

tiled into the ceiling

I sit in the dark


my own dark


nobody knows who I am

in there

or out here


I don’t know them either


they too are stuck in the dark

same as me

but in different rooms


our own personal obscuras

shaped like key holes

that we see each other through


tarnished locks with no keys

and

no locksmiths around


just shadow people


stimulated and depressed

with chemical agents to eat away the locks

for just a moment

or a night


under neon lights
