Looking forward to a New Year and a new normal
Wearied of solitude
my spirit longs
for a New Year and a new normal.

The empty perfume bottle
of my dreams
lays shattered
on the tiles of the old year,
its lingering scent
unable
to conceal the stench
of my loneliness.

Breathless I wait
for the Time Square ball to drop,
my visions of hope to return,
and this torment to end.
