Circuit Interrupted




You say, we need to think of some things
That went forgotten, during our days together.

You say, we need to pay more attention
To the greater world, ignored for so long.

You say, it might be better
Not to have this exclusive relationship
Here between us, since it blinds us
To the importance of everything else going on.

My brain hears all your words
And is busy placing them in compartments;
But my body hears only with it's heart-
And now these hands are shaking.

  1. Wow! You have described what I have felt on more than one occasion, Patti, and nailed my usual response in that final stanza. Remarkable.
