Happy Valentine's day .. to cyber-singles .. all of Us who may be Persons someday ;-)
Dear Ms. Craigslist singles correspondent:
Thanks for the note; no worries on falling out of contact
--- MUCH more common than not, I've come to know,
when dealing with "virtual persons"
Seems we craigslisters (etc) have by&large
not developed our mmm..
notions of cyberpeople as "real"
we become real to each other (if ever ;)
only after meeting "in the flesh."
Since this makes a lot of sense to me anyhow
and more importantly since this seems to be
"The Way It Is"
I've developed my own adaptation
which though somewhat odd
is in fact "in keeping" with my overall beingness
whereby I enjoy the email by-play
feel some of the personhood of my cyber-correspondents
allow myself to feel the Fundamental Reality
of mental / emotional / spirit-ish connectedness
and allow You/them all the latitude of responding or not
...dropping off the face of the map
dropping back in
It's not just you
It's not about me
simply a microcosm of
the being of human
as human is being cyberppl
no worries =;-)
If your yearnings start turning
toward a companion
dedicated to offbeat singularity
incapable of conservatism
other than as the wolf in sheep's clothing
perhaps we will yet meet
It is instructive perhaps
the apparent dissonance
between your stated "craigslist persona"
laundry list of qualities
and your present paramour
I'm finding it more "real" than not
to ascribe those craigslist lists
to passing fancies
partial expressions of only the
...known only TO "the known self"
thus devoid of Shadow
devoid of perspective
Cartoons drawn by the hand
of the cartoon character
-as it were ;-)
Happy Sunny St. Valentine's day
Enjoy your life, your music, your lovin' !
