i trolled an old associate just now
a dear friend once a long while
gone the bye and bye
associated by a common interest when left to sabbatical
fallen away
it remains
she remains
i remain
but so much air between us
difficult to breath 
into the hollowed out divide
does social media command such connection
yet also release such falsity
did ancient days hold hands more securely
have we built bridges and towers never meant to be constructed
stones topple around this Babel
i will not rebuild
i will learn
go on speak in a new tongue
