There are no new stories now

though everything is happening

nothing is happening 

so nothing to say

nothing to tell

no gossip

face to face

lit up with smiles

the smiles are missing

hidden away with the moues

and other clues

of warmth and welcome

or icy distaste.

The fires in our bellies

have been doused

put out


as we skate around each other.

Unseen ice is dangerous

so we take care

to miss each other

as we miss each other.
