"So I took her up on her suggestion / And emerged from my reclusivity / At least for forty-five minutes or so / Fired up my old Chrysler and go man go"

Transcendental Sonnet #1290:

Reclusive Inclusive


I called up the supermarket to ask

If I could buy my apples with a check

The lady who answered allowed her mask

To slip a bit and she asked "What the heck

Do you think people do and where have you

Been?  Under a rock somewhere?"  That was fair

As it was an unusual question


So I took her up on her suggestion

And emerged from my reclusivity

At least for forty-five minutes or so

Fired up my old Chrysler and go man go

I found some brown rice which was very nice

Ten pounds of apples and boxes of tea

They accepted a check  ...even from me

Sometimes you just have to make a start at reaching out to the real world and the society we must deal with.
