Conversation slower than ice melting

It is so quiet

but that’s the new normal now


I heard your thought

and I was frozen on my feet

I was!

like usual, I thought about it

and I felt it

let it spread out

wider, farther, drifting beyond sight

it’s no wish of mine to explore the cold space

so why am I drifting out to the distant reaches?

But no matter

empty air can be lonely but it isn’t asking for anything

A companion expects a response

An empty chair is undemanding

my unrealized wish was to be near

yet I’m here instead

Tap out a message for the space alien
