poem: Re-entry Commute

commute

circle of friends shrunk to a

cavernous zero

digital chatter

silenced

washed up on the shore

of independence

ejected from the sea

of circumstance

 

ripple of dark over green

velvet shimmering

ruffle of time caught

in a vision of fields

skimming the tracks between cities

of purpose

glorified limbo

 

melts

 

sweeping down stairways

surfing through tunnels

the magnificence

of this animal

humanity
