I’m not alone
here in the library
and yet it feels
as though I am
sitting here
headphones on
listening to music
in isolation
doing my thing
no one bothering me
not that they would
I feel like I’m in my own
little world
grading papers
instead of reading a book
inputting grades
as I keep warm
and connected
to the outside world
that is the internet
