• Reconnecting


    you see i have days
    when i draw an invisible line
    on the ground outside my door
    i’d rather not go beyond it

    it’s called an irrational fear
    of the world & of its people

    the world comes to me
    through status updates or tweets,
    flat-toned telegraphic messages
    sent by iPhones, androids & such

    how can i draw a map
    of my inner destination
    when i am semi-permanently
    glued to this ergonomically
    built seat unable to disconnect
    mind & soul & body
    from an electric power source?

    at year’s end
    i question modes of living
    like this one stained
    by apprehension of
    flesh-blood people in this world

    how long, how quickly
    will this artificial dread last?

    today i pray for reconnection
    to just one original source,
    The Incarnate One
    birthed by a virgin
    who was
    of this world
