Wishful Valentine

I wish people would stop
saying we’re born alone
and we’ll die alone when
really we’re never alone
unless we ourselves
impose the condition
and even then it’s merely
a pretense and pouting
we don’t need cell phones
to speak with our so-called dead
loved ones working all around us
who aren’t captivated by selfies
and aren’t worried about money
who have given up the superstition
that the body alone is real
