THE ROOM REVISITED

THE ROOM REVISITED

Eye of the cobweb
In my self-imposed room
I’m thinking
Thinking there is a world out there –
      To the perimeters and
      All between –
A world of living creatures
Creatures whose complete concern is
Survival 

In my comfy room
Eye of the cobweb
I fancy them
Cute
Or beautiful
Or ugly
Furry
Slimy 
Whatever
They are alive!
All, essentially, the same
Whose complete concern is
Survival 
All competitors
All predators

Eye of the cobweb
In my room revisited
I’m thinking
In reality
There is no “thing” about them
Cute
Beautiful
Ugly
Furry
Or slimy
They are alive!
All brothers
Caught up in this spinning, cruel world together

Eye of the cobweb
In my room revisited
I’m shedding tears
