Life is Off

moving purposefully
in this small space
determined
idle productivity

everything
and everyone
standing still
while the world shifts

close contact
feels extinguished
but not
the craving

a need for warmth
in a world
that seems to
have gone cold

a temporary situation
they say
hopefully
this depression is too

May you all have enough distance to be safe and
connected with sufficient love to remain sane.
