Cassandro



I'm seeing connections others aren't picking up.

I'm writing some of them out.

Maybe other people see them, but brush them off.

Or bury them deep deep.

My chemical balances are good, I sleep well.

Not claiming to be divinely special or CIA.

Only:  even the people listening, aren't.

They watch my lips, then take their turn

At moving onto the next guy's words.

This is my fate.  To wait.

  2. Thanks, Ben. Just reflecting on the 'aloneness' of the writing part of my life. Probably does mesh with Mulligan's 'Moonlight'.
