kenopsia * the eerie, forlorn atmosphere

of a place that’s usually bustling with people

but is now abandoned and quiet.

an emotional afterimage that makes it seem

not just empty but hyper-empty,

with a total population in the negative,

who are so conspicuously absent

they glow like neon signs.

John Koenig’s Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows
