Depressive Isolation Alternatives

Write
and publish
a poem
No one likes
But you.

sit outside
a coffee shop
and laugh
at a baby
learning how
to use
their arms.

Go to
noodles n company
and bawl publicly
about the
tragic life
and suicide
of a woman you
saw yourself in.

drink a
cold beer
at a park

while watching
someone
be pushed
on a swing
for the
first time.

sit on your deck
in only
a sports bra
and leggings,

and enjoy
the view
of the rooftops
and alleyways.

walk to your
local market
and chat about
heirloom basil
with strangers.
