On Curiosity and Trips to the Zoo

One by one, they call.

One by one, they are overtaken with their curiousity and succumb to the desire to seek me out again.  They show up with their memory in tow, ready to assess the current state of things.  Who is better off, whose lives have changed, whose minds have changed…dancing around the urge to know the magnitude of impact….if there was any impact.

So they show up to witness first hand the potential fall out and I humor them.  They wear masks of concern and nostalgia but what they really want, more than anything, is to feel good.  They seek justification  and validation of their own lives, and merely wish to ensure that nothing was overlooked.

That they’re not missing out.

So one by one they arrive, to stare in awe for a moment or take a picture, a momento.  Come to see the main attraction, and then it’s back to their reality until the next trip to the zoo.
