A Self Contained Apartment – Written Wednesday 18th August 2021 (Aged 46)

A Self Contained Apartment

in many ways
i have always felt self contained
not different
or special
or even aloof
just self contained
assured within
the natural chaos of myself
i find it easy
to step back and step away
from life and people
i suspect
that is not always healthy
but my imagination
has always felt sufficiently wealthy
