What would the lonely say if their voices we heard…
rather then silent walking,
their eyes downcast,
rather then staring at phones,
messages lost in the past?
So much connectivity in society
—so many disconnected—
paying more than they should for a connecting plan,
yet unable to buy a hug,
drifting and waiting, not for a hand,
but eye contact.
Let’s see the world.
