World-watching

And so, she sat and watched the world

Crawling by.

On every face a flag unfurled,

Declaring an inner state;

Making liars of Donne.

They hover,

Protecting their bubble,

But not knowing why.

In place of stillness

Dark feelings lie, coiled

But reluctant.

Above their heads a hundred windows glint

But not reflecting.

At the top of the hill

Every man is an island.
