Are We

Are we?

Are we reduced to
solitary states of isolation.
Where neither
have skill or tool
to form relationships.

I
want
to avoid the whole
painful mess –
Go on holiday – fly around the globe
with one steady wing
dropping to earth – as I see fit –
Sit in sunned stone courtyard

Wondering –
If you are at a morning table
lifting the newspaper and
tea cup closer.

Simple things
somehow leave us
stranded.
