conversation

 

weekends at the vineyard meant   in part   

getting away from the city

 

the pressure of constant interaction   

its numbing effects

 

it was nice having space   and air to breathe

in a bucolic   rural setting   

 

it's been five months   five months

of device-oriented confinement   

 

not unpleasant   certainly not

an excess of people within these four walls   

 

i guess i'm a little lonely   i find myself

chatting with my shadow on my morning run   

 

airing thoughts   mollifying anxiety

it is a one-sided conversation   

 

but it is something   if not someone

with a physical   though ever-changing    presence

Exactly my (and many other's) feeling right now. It's surely been a "five months of device-oriented confinement." Your poem has captured the spirit, the real zeitgeist of the year 2020, in its bare essence.
