overwhelmed

APOLOGY

Don’t keep up on Twitter
Don’t keep up on WordPress
Though I appreciate followers
My mind has been a mess
Sometimes I think I’ve answered you
But kindle and phone apps go askew
Please know I read and love your stuff
I didn’t abandon you
Apology
Don’t give up on me…

CONCEALMENT

Too much

The world

When once

I refused to read

A newspaper

Watch the news

Now bombarded

By social media

Too much

Can I wish myself

Into a wisp of

Perfumed air

And disappear

Down the sound hole

Of a wood

Or even laminate

Ukulele, guitar

Stay far far away

From the world today

And think of ways

To habitate in my new

Fortress of Solitude

Hoping the strong wind

Will pluck the strings

In minor keys

To bring me peace

From the looming faces

And voices

Of the world

That are just too much for me
