Solid Solitary Projective Verse

Coming upon Cavafy’s 'Walls,"
One is struck not so much 
By its masterful construction— 
Each word firmly in its rightful place, 
As befits a master word mason—but how 
At the end of that brief monologue
On loss and involuntary solitude, 
If the reader has indeed attended 
To what is rightly taking place,
He finds himself right at home, 
Next to a singular silence 
He never dreamt was coming.
