the old cold void

Sometimes you stare into the void
and it avoids eye contact

So you awkwardly wave hello,
and there’s this moment
when you think it might care,
just a little

But it turns
and slowly walks away,
and you’re never really sure
if it was ever really there,
where you thought it was,
where you were that whole time

-Martin Burns
