Each week we examine a theme from a variety of points of view. This week’s theme is psychology.
Today’s poem is a name and psychological poem about an unfortunately common modern type.
I welcome comments on my poems at https://nicholasgordon.blogspot.com.
Meredith has never been marooned,
Even though it sometimes feels like that.
Relationships have dwindled to one cat,
Even as her inbox has ballooned.
Deep into the night she crunches numbers,
Intelligent, industrious, alone,
Talking only business on the phone,
Hard at rest but briefly when she slumbers.
