Congregation of humanity, each individual dealing with banalities.

Supermarket. Banal.

Get in and get out, ASAP.

That’s me.

Others, sigh, they seem to view it as a social event, and how they loiter (expansively!), talking to their tenuous comrades, reaching out, “connecting”, blocking the aisles, loud-low chatter, carts askew.

Me, I have my own indulgences, somewhat self-contained: I spend minutes studying product labels, trying to choose the best option, trying to decide the best fit. It’s incorporated into my ASAP (I wouldn’t expect that arm reaching past me, pushing in, to understand (Asshole!))…

 

We are together: same place, same time,

but we are apart.

Congregation of humanity,

each individual dealing with banalities,

his/her own,

we don’t understand one another (and we don’t really want to).
