today is friday, tomorrow will be sunday night

we are a mismatched set, you and I,
two heads bent together to form an empty vase. 
I am the imbecile who twists herself 
into a knot, and fills two seats.
She could fill none at all, he notes.
time has no meaning in this rush, though
it is the only thing you say matters. 
your eloquence is plastic, I say, 
and you wheel out a monotone of syllables 
that cancel themselves out, until we are both
black specks on a crowded canvas. 
He paints. The canvas is
a different sort of empty.
