250 Solitaires

250 solitaires
are not exactly
100 years of solitude
except when they are

250 solitaires
of different varieties
offering the illusion
of diversity

250 solitaires
in one app
for one person
to live within

250 solitaires
instead of writing
instead of reading
instead of sleeping
instead of talking

250 solitaires
interrupted by a phone call
from an old friend
(all my friends are old,
like me)
a friend from years ago
work years

250 solitaires
as soon as I hear
her hello
