Robinson Crusoe

The same room with the same ceiling

In the same building on the same road

Off the same exit off the same highway

Playing a different song that sounds the same

A different playlist for a different season

A different voice for a different reason

I remember something far different

Imagined to only one

I answered every question

But got none of mine answered

I told so many different stories

Yet the song always remains the same

The sincere evaporated

Into a sea of artists

Wading around splashing with their paddles of passion

The brilliant and beautiful

And I continue to watch

Always the same

The same Robinson Crusoe

Waiting to dive deep

But staying out of the water, away from sharks, away from the undertow
