Pas de Deux from a Distance

Monica found this uncredited poem on the Internet.

Pas de Deux from a Distance

togetherness shadow on the asphalt
cemented perishability
under the sun, under the sun
nothing to search for afterwards
"songs are like tattoos"
your disgraceful steps down to the rhythm
night steps toward my door
night steps never to enter tattoos
painfully engraved in the body
your songs so far from any music ever
town trams following up each other
town trams never to stop tattoos
stingingly in graved in the being
your humming words covering the poem
flash lights clinging to the windows
yellow flashes on the walls
togetherness shadows on the walkways
