this thing called a ‘social life’,

I hear that it’s much in demand.

If I didn’t write, then I wouldn’t be sitting by myself in my room right now, huddled over my laptop like Gollum with his Precious, typing with in syncopatic stop-start-rhythms, trying to get the imagery, words, phrases and sentences in my head onto the screen in front of me.

Instead I’d be out having drinks with friends,
wishing that society would start deeming it acceptable
to sit scribbling with a notebook and pen while in the
company of others
