A HUMAN NUMBER
(6/23/16)


we live
on a many peopled
planet

in crowded
countries

busy cities

towns

neighborhoods

everywhere
that we go

everyplace
where we look

we see
our fellow
flock

still
we are alone
inside
of our heads

inside
of our hearts

our souls
reach out
to God

but others
always seem
to get
in the way

our only
answer
resides inside

where
there's room
for only
one
