Deeper

Photo and Poem by Angie Mack, musician, Grafton, WI 11.29.19

We don’t go deep enough
into the lives of others
because this world is
speeding up
and being tousled like
a giant and messy ball of yarn.
We are doing too much
in too short of time.
We need to slow down.
Simplify.
And really get to know each other.

What is your deepest desire?
What are your quirks?
What hurt you in life?
What did you want to be when you were young?
Where would you like to travel?

We need to sit on our rockers again,
sip our sun tea and talk it up
until the sun goes down.
But, for many of us, we are working
our asses off just to survive
this greedy globe.
