To Sit With You Again

(Hello Facebook my old friend,

I’ve come to sit with you again)

 

In a public book of avatar faces

We meet without touching,

Talk without speaking:

The background echoes

Of a minstrel-prophet.

Did he really see what was coming?

Is it so wrong to crave silence?

To try to turn up a collar

Against the ego, babble and nonsense?

 

That time of year:

Grave winter becoming

Brave spring;

That soul-search time of night,

That stage of unexplored friendship:

Depths innocently plumbed.

 

There’s no music

That I can hear.

This is a song

I can never sing.
