lonely is

Lonely Monkey Ape at Zoo

a rock orbiting in the void of the asteroid belt
a solitary cloud floating in a sunny blue sky
chocolate without peanut butter
an apple without a pie

the moon without life on its surface
a planet without a moon to glow at night
the sun without a star nearby to shine with
the dark without the light

a body without a soul
a father without his children
a shepherd without his sheep
a man without a woman

me without her

    This revision is of a high school original poem. The original had “lonely is ” starting each line. I don’t like that kind of repetition as much as I once did. So I cut that stuff and changed the title from “lonely” to “lonely is”.
