“No Man Is An Island”

You speak to my spirit with logic,

I answer your mind from my soul

 

With words in two disparate languages,

our discourse to never be whole

 

Your left hemisphere sealed in a vacuum,

when my right hemisphere comes to call

 

Though Donne said, “No Man Is An Island”

—you’re marooned there adrift toward the falls

 

(St. David’s Pennsylvania: February, 2020)
