Ode of a social caterpillar

I am at peace in feature film silences,
darkness that negates conversation.
I thrive in meditative warmth that shuts
out the world and allows me thought.
I can smile and chitchat only when social
activity is structured, square-danced.
Otherwise, I paper the wall and stick
to my one friend, I run away and circle
the block, spinning, before returning, breaking
off another part of my cocoon.

Hey SZR- Come away from the wall for a moment, into the light, and say hello.
