I wandered,
lonely,
in a crowd,
Amid bells of
Christmas cheer,

the hurried glug
of festive beer.

Suburban commuters
hustling home,
minds crammed
with lists and bills,
beggars’ eyes,
homeless spirits,
freezing,
pleading,
‘see me’.

A touch,
a bump,
a smile,
a ‘sorry’,
carol singers
deck the halls
with holly.

In this breakneck
world
of instant message
and ker-ching,
is it really
just the lonely
feel the sting
of isolation
in an orgy of everything?©
