Closing In

There is that pressure

when things matter

how long we can avoid reality

while we watch the hands fall

before they begin to rise again

then they fall

rise again

they fall and suddenly we’re lost again

wondering why we cannot recreate that moment

you know the one

remember when you were on the sidewalk

and suddenly everyone that walked past you looked

beautiful? safe? available?

non-threatening of reality of society around us

how often does that occur

when we can stroll into a space of human contact

and smile without fear

speak without … knowing you

knowing me

we all seem to be free

when we can step outside the box

without letting the walls completely

yes, that is happening now

they are,

Closing in!

I would love your commentary
