Loneliness creeps in the windows 

crawls across the floor                 

settles in my lap

loneliness cannot be eased

by a lighted screen in the corner of the room

or one held in the hand

or by a box delivered to a doorstep

Loneliness can be eased

by a friendly smile

given across a counter     

by a cheerful word in the marketplace

or a visit to a place of beauty 

that warms the heart

or the wag of a furry tail

on the floor beside my chair
