Cruise Poetry

th (18)acrowdoflonelinessThe following are a series of poems that I wrote on a cruise to San Juan, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islannds. They are glimpses of my observations of social interactions on the ship. “A Crowd of Loneliness”” did not happen, but represents a reflection of the human condition where emotion is avoided at all costs but is sometimes triggered by something that ends in a carthitic reaction. It also represents the underlying , sometimes seemingly uncontrollable bursts of passion that sometimes rise suddenly unannounced in all of us and occasionally are released with catastrotrophic results.
