You’ve settled your affairs with

friends and relatives who 

forget to call you during their

festive events though they always

invite you to funerals

you’ve settled with annoying memories

and unrealized  dreams

now in peace with yourself

you put on your cap and

walk out of your prison

you turn toward shopping mall

where you’ll meet your pals and

after a game of backgammon

two coffees and three cigarettes

you’ll walk back to your house

for another long soundless night
