“It’s very important to know the neighbour next door and the person down the street and the people in another race.” Maya Angelou

Unlocking

How to navigate this hermetic cul-de-sac,
unitary cells of teflon,
the loneliness of locked doors,
alienated minus-community
hungry for real connection,
desiring wholeness, mutuality, 
to be understood,
having purpose without bond,
giving and receiving,
a storied adventure,
taking patient time,
unlocking our fears,
opening the elements of our lives,
living the commons,
connecting,
changing,
whole.
