Plain - Poem by George Kassabgi

Sounds of muffled noise
Amid waves of traffic
Such was all that passed through
To awaken him
On this most commonplace of mornings

Propped up on layers
Pausing to reflect
Still in a daze
Able to reach into his silence
Ever so briefly
Thinking of himself now
Through lenses of the masses

What brought him to this point
He still ponders
Culture must bear his visage
And thus the crowds
Have woven their golden thread
Thus the machines
Have tied their double knot

For if only he could feel anew
Such simple pleasures
That so touched heart and mind
As if only he could feel
And now on this new day
All that is plain fails to reach him
