in this sci-fi reality that is our current norm

you can walk along a street

not seeing any other soul

but if you look closer

you can see the light behind windows

if you listen intently

you might hear the faint sound of music or laughter

maybe it is foolish or romanticizing

but I like to imagine families huddled together watching a movie

or listening to someone read aloud

and really that doesn’t seem like a bad thing to me
