A sprinkling of people. Corner seats. Aisle seats. Large expanse of emptiness stretches. No cell phones ring. No banter and chatter. No rush for snacks during the interval. No guffaws. No sniffles. No sound of things falling. No stolen glances in the dark. No hands held. No thighs touch. No elbows nudge.
I get a good view of the dark blue seats. It is like a film itself with long shadows in twilight. One exit point is visible with a light that shows how easy escape is when no one is around.
But when there is no one, what do you escape from?
