Thin Stacks

Paul attempted to sort
the different kinds of loneliness

and place precise titles
on each category

but he failed since no two lonelinesses
seemed the same

even though they all involved
an inability to be alone

without feeling loss
and separation

and each was so defined
by the user’s actions

and locations
that they remained separate

with unaccompanied definitions
in piles of one.
