We are a tribal people who need human contact. This isolation we endure cuts into us but in doing so releases another side of our being and shows us the humanity and goodness we are capable of. May we use our new found responses to our current circumstances for the greater good of mankind when all these troubles are over

For John Prine.

I bet you are mobile ready to duck and to dive
You look like you might be responsive
To hotel rooms and love on the side

So move just a little closer let me feel your caustic vibe
We could easily be happy
Won’t you come along for the ride

You look bemused and shaken shocked by my words and dark intent
I am a man of deep persuasion
I feel a woman in your scent

So come with me to the cornfield
Run with me through the long grass
Let me see the wildness in you
Before this moment has passed

If you insist I will be patient I’ll minimise the pain by acting proud
I’ll sacrafice my straight face
And when alone I’ll shout out loud
