Mid-Atlantic drift

There is only you
the last one standing
even though
you’re not
standing.

But you make a move
an eyelid twitches
switches to the other one
and that one twitches too.

The film across your eyes
plays something from the sixties
but you’ve seen that film before
and so
turning over,
you go back to sleep,
