I can not capture this sense of dissociation

I can not capture this sense of dissociation
Reflected in campfires
Of shop windows that blaze.

Walking home
I remember Rome
And see wolves waiting
For the camp’s lights to go out

Quote Of The Day

“If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies

on the other side of silence. As it is, the quickest of us walk about well wadded with stupidity”.
