[lit-ideas] Re: Sunday Poem

I've been gone, so it's unfair for me to post without knowing. But it's also normal, I'm told.

how much
we cannot express
how little
we value intimacy
though we live on top of one another
how rarely we listen
to those who try
and how crabby we actually are

speeches at weddings
arranged formulaically
in a rented tent
piles of utilized notions
stacked quite high
how much we love
what the sea knows best
me, I've taken to wearing a life vest
