a lesser fraction

the isolation fits well
how often do you talk to others?
do you touch the walls of the room?
do you get out of your chair?
do you let someone know you are there?

light moves around
shadows build the ground
something lost and found
as active as something used
vertebrae fused

in the analysis paralysis
is a frozen wingbeat
is a scene in repeat
is something incomplete
is a frozen wave of defeat

you surrendered back there
to an assertion that was a subtraction
to a definition that was a detraction
to a movement that courted inaction
and you are a lesser fraction
of yourself than you were
