solitary.

Barry is minute for his age

His curly hair and round face makes him look smaller

But his eyes say otherwise

Sturdier because of the creases on his temple

 

He walks from his house to his work

Thirty minutes a day per way is no sweat

He doesn’t mind the heat and noise

Just as so he could save some more

 

He’s an exemplary employee

Everyone adores the man with a towel on his shoulder

They call him for help and everything else

But nobody really knows him beyond name

 

He comes home in an empty apartment

Cooks the chicken dinner for one

He puts a framed picture across the table

And eats alone in the dark
