kindred

kindred friends
distance be damned
words brought together
broken down
to binary
and back again
rooftop yawps
and basement whisperings
microphones immortalize
as poets sing and cry
kindred companions
circle round
but try they
cannot shield
the closest are
the furthest flown
you next to me
i feel alone

One thought on “kindred

  1. Reblogged this on unknown poetry and commented:

    A 1-take recording of a poem written about a year ago to all the kindred poets I’ve come to know. Since then the circle has grown and I’m even more grateful for your presence.
