Meetings

We have meetings now

…..scheduled blocks of time

…..once or twice a month

…..small pieces of each other.

We have meetings now

….luncheons here and there

…..dinner if the time permits

…..just enough to keep our distance

We have meetings now

…..snapshots to hold in memory

…..moments of disjointed discourse

…..carefully choreographed as dance

We have meetings now

…..normal life lived from day to day

…..set aside to be carefully avoided

…..truth and caring no longer required

We have meetings now

…..gone the sense of casual comfort

…..gone the need to loved ones closer

…..just quick steps towards growing apart.
