ATTACHMENTS

Be first to rate

We send emails from screen to screen

and cannot say just what we mean;

 

by telephone we talk at night

but never quite get down to it.

 

We post each other words and signs,

but fail to read between the lines;

 

to meet at station bars we plan,

end up, by chance, in no one’s town.

 

We text abbreviated thoughts

about our days’ successes, doubts;

 

our lives a constant round of gigs,

our schedules full of pure success,

 

and in our dreams convince ourselves

we choose to live alone our lives.
