Feeling alone in a room full of people
most conversation goes on without me
most conversation is uninteresting
There is nothing I need or want to say
except to change the subject:
books, movies, landscaping, vacations…
but it never stays changed for long…
too much work talk
on summer vacation
is this all we have?
there are work friends –
and then there are friends at work.
When I am off duty, I am a real person
with outside interests
even my inside interests are of little interest
to those around me
