The Answer is in Other People

A bid for connection in the mundane

I could journey in - inside, but

what wisdom had time to

find a place to hide in there?

New, crescent,

I’m trying to

close loops and finding

data skewed, misinterpreted

misleading anomalies

A dull and insensate routine expands

to fill the empty space

Steeping disillusion, a pulled fluid

Their labyrinthian advice

I take my doubt through

the exit, the gap fills

An accepted bid for connection proves


innerworkings, while

A misstep narrows reality to a singular,

estranged point

Though, in the faux-spotlight of

mistakes, it’s highlighted:

It’s not about me

It’s not about you, alone

The answer is in other people

Un-researched, discovered


as it’s created


About the Creator


The written word is everything. I love to read, and I love to write - primarily fiction and poetry, but I'm also psyched to learn about pretty much any topic and to share my expertise in music and music business.
