a façade (of me and you) on the street

Inspired by the phrase ‘Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets’ taken from ‘The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock’ by T. S. Eliot.
This now comprises a part of The Linkages Project

through
descended darkness

loitering
between streetlamps

the night speaks
step by step

in echoes
rebounded from the walls
of sundry buildings
wearing
genteel façades

we go
through vacant streets
deserted
with the sun


one fades

the other
disappears

until only we
you
and I
are left
alone together

as we have always been

speaking
to the night
in footsteps
and the tread of shoes

the only voice
a subtle distortion
of ourselves

a façade
of footsteps

an echo
