Dear people of the world

Dear people of the world,

what are we seeing
behind our closed eyes?
and what are we feeling
under the walls of protection?
how are we still alive?
when living is what we are
doing the least..

[and as he does a line
in his downhearted get-away --
from the world,

a child sits on the sandy pavement
wondering what the world is like
somewhere else..

Sincerely yours,
concerned observer

when living is what we are
doing the least
