Woman shopping and men praying in Serrekunda, The Gambia, West Africa by Skendong

thinking

thinking is an important thing /
or concept best revelled in solitude.

was surprised when the commentator
revealed: by listening to music

one does not think.
or when reading a book

we are never alone but
engaging with the writer’s thoughts.

too, that solitude is different
from loneliness.

In the midst of the metropolis
the commentator said

you can still feel alone /
or garner

solitude amidst the people.
but

you are never quite solitary –
lonely – but not alone.
