The Gift of Presence
But I bear none to this confusion
flattened into a stoic time-presence .
Fine with time, may be fine too
with an engagement with variety
wherever we choose to buy peace
from purveyors of continuity.
But then, we live our days in parts
ironically linked to connectivity of sorts.
Only to be configured over time
by a cellular disengagement .
