Splendid Isolation


I can no longer hear you through this splendid isolation

Whether that’s purposeful on my part or consensual on yours makes no real difference

It’s not as if we had so much in common that we could get to know each other just by turning inward, like those others you sometimes matched us up against

Today’s stark contrasts feel sharper than any kitchen knife and cut so much deeper

But rather than despair we choose forgetfulness

Leaving us only to wonder once again what this silence is all about
