Humanity’s Song

by mudrhetoric

I don’t wear headphones in public.
I want to hear the sounds.
Footsteps on pavement.
Cars halting at lights.

I don’t desire separation.
I meet everyone’s eyes.
Some avert.
Some acknowledge.

We are both still human.
We walked together.
Down well trodden paths.
Toward the low mountain.

We sought imbuement.
We partook in communion.
Ensconced blue.
Ensconced ruddiness.
