Alone

There is something lonely about a group of children
There is something lonely about the sound of far-off playing
There is something lonely about a single swing
Swinging and swinging and swinging
Squeaking and creaking and screeching
There is something lonely about leering, contorting faces
There is something lonely about wrinkled clothes and disheveled hair
There is something lonely about near-silent places
Crying and crying and crying
Sniffling and swallowing and sighing
Alone
