We pass tiny universes every day,
Content with ourselves, but
Ignorant of the other.
Our windows have become mirrors.
Impersonal personalities
That killed the cat before
Curiosity had a chance.
We are safer in our bubbles,
‘Tis true,
But we have given up
The danger only felt when
Truly living.
Sacrifices are necessary,
But was this one?

The author's comments:

I thought of this while in the car and watching everyone in their cars go past and I thought about how many complex lives are being led right now.
