"I'm Not Convinced We Know Anything"

Humanity Through A Window

Humanity Through A Window

20150613_111459
Looks into a small road,
View slightly blocked by the steel grids,
Security is important,
Protection from ourselves,
Self created prisons,
Prisons we come home to.
Caged.

Two friends,
In track suits,
Earphones,
Plugged into “Made in China” tech,
Deep into “Made in America” music,
Silently speaking to avatars,
Disconnected

Zoom,
Blindly past each other
Past caricatures and slippery identities
An old black man guided by his walking stick,
An indian girl licking her ice cream
a withering rose,
a moment,
Forgotten.

Covered,
Hidden from the rest,
Just a little bit of face,
Eyes tucked behind sunglasses,
Facades.

Humanity through a window,
Caged,
Disconnected,
Forgotten,
Facades.
