Pandemic Ponderings

Dating Site

Fingers fly over faces, some smiling, others

stoic, then the occasional blurry one, or

the pic that’s 20 years old.

 

Profiles abound, shuffled through like a deck of

cards—which one is a winner—place

your bets.

 

Although slightly ashamed of it, my image is

paraded for all to see, fortunately, the name has

been changed to protect the guilty.

 

Online, members are searching, hoping to find the

diamond in the rough, the Trophy Wife, or

runner-up girlfriend.

 

Although anthropologically fascinating, the viewing

feels artificial. Still, it’s the safest way to proceed,

or is it?

INVISIBLE, by Joan Ellen Gage

 

bird nest 2 signed

Invisible

See me, do you

see me?

I am here, and

exist, just

because I am

hidden in my

nest, just

because I don’t

call to you,

does not mean

I am

invisible.

You are caught up

in your lives,

staying with the

familiar. You

disremember I

am still here, you

forget, and I don’t

want to be

needy, so I

stay in my nest, and

try to

sing.
