Sometimes
You feel yourself
Outside the candy store
Nose to the frosty glass.

So cold, the pane
Sun on your back
Daylight and traffic
All going by.

What's in there
That's so wonderful?
Dioramas set in time
Edible as photographs.

Tastes of time gone by.
You long to go inside.
You know the store is closed.
You'd have to break the glass.

Then what?
Would the people
Know your name?
Would they sit you
Down to tea?

And if they did
What could you say?

When first we discover that we are, and always will be, separated from everyone else by that "pane of glass", we are saddened.

As we mature we discover that everyone is separated from others by their own "pane of glass" and we learn the meaning of despair........

Thanks, Kathy
and Sky...in a way, yes...and...what are you doing to that cat? :)
Spike,
The cat is wearing a hoodie in honour of a young person murdered by a gun toting wanna-be-a-cop of a neighbourhood watch 'captain' who seems to think he's the sheriff of Dodge city of 150 years ago.

.
We can never seem to get away from that separation.
"Dioramas set in time"
great line.
