in a crowded room

in response to Writing 101, Day 4

station

we’re all in a
hurry.
we have places to
be;
tracks to follow
(not make)
and not much time.

look around, if
you feel like it.
play a game – count
the iGadgets.
hint: you can spy them
by the earphones.

do you see all the
gadgetry here?
look at the
architecture,
the way the
sunlight
hits the room.
instead we’re all
amused by jpg.s
and
occupied by email.

note
how no-one makes
eye contact
or stops to talk.
the only conversation is
a transaction.

it is a
crowded room and
we are all
alone.
