Sometimes the city makes you wonder what the word alone even means. It's a strange thing to be alone here, and it exists on a spectrum rather than a binary anyway. When we are on an empty street, devoid of joggers, dogs, or pigeons, and a stranger 10 floors up watches us wander, are we alone? Yet it is hard, at times, in the darkness of short days, to not feel alone, lonely, or at least lonesome even as you cancel plans and regretfully decline invitations to go to places you have never been. On the days when you can't bear to be yourself the guy at the bodega will say "what's up brother" and your neighbor will nod hello while walking his dog. They can see you exist, after all.
