Only the lonely


Who are they?
The lonely people.
The people who don't blend in.
Don't participate as the rest are.
Where do you go to escape the crowds?
Or maybe they're not escaping the crowds.
Or escaping anything.

Maybe he's a journalist working on a piece for a magazine.
Or writing a book. Taking notes.

Maybe nothing like that all.
He doesn't seem to notice the crowd. Nor the noise.
He's not using any of it.
Like he's not interested in the masses flowing through the street only a few feet away.
Not afraid to be alone.
Just afraid to be alone in the dark.
