together, alone.

alone,
very much together
but still one,
always one at a time:
surrounded by the world
the rain hits harder,
sings louder when
larger the shelter.
alone, each falls, we
all fall alone
but the fell, together
in their loneliness
is
the flood that cries
down from the sky
it is
enough to drown and
still
enough to give life.
