"a crowd of quiet lovers"

"a crowd of quiet lovers"
written after a hearty breakfast by jake kilroy.

unearthed with grit in the muscles,
pulled back like a victorian curtain,
there were heavens in each of us,
circuses in the chest,
dinner parties in the depths.
we were a mass of loners
spread across the world,
thinking, my god,
if only they knew.
