Vanishing

Always the fear, but never the reality

            Replaceable
            Ancillary
            Nonessential
            Irrelevant

But now,  this flipped upside down bizarro world

Everything is the same, and yet...

              empty
              vacant
              barren
              depleted

So unnatural, lacking

               community
               kinship
               intimacy

Untethered from one another, left without a counterbalance
I can see the invisibility surrounding us

It is, truly, a fight for survival...to see each other.  To be seen.

  1. I feel this, Amy. You know that this may sound strange (or maybe not after reading this post), but when I’m out on a run and someone says hello or waves to me (and these days everybody does), I feel connected. We need that feeling. That’s what I miss the most. I wonder what it will be like when we heal as a nation – I’m hoping that we can rekindle the community that we once had.
