barbed wire

January 28, 2016

seal me in, shy alibi,
my bag,
a subtle strategy,
so casually left,
on the seat next to me,
– my gaze out the window,
away from your stare,
to tell you straight on:
there’s nothing to share.

Notice those headphones
and please carry on,
I’m not unaware
with my gaze on that phone.

Barbed wire around us,
invisible walls,
the membrane has thickened
on our old lonesome souls.
