the sunset has no radiant heat
a purring kitten is hushed
on the screen.
I sit inside, away from the
social gatherings, the sunburn, the colds
and entertain with the computer.
Read stories, create stories
see the world, add pictures of my own world;
Always listening to the music stream
that flows and divides to meet again
inside of my head.
Do I lose time IRL
or is this my reality, fixated
on a screen, living vicariously
in the safety of inside?
