We do not meet

We do not meet. Our meetings we design, unconsciously, to come to the point of meeting, then turn away. We use image projectors and darken the room so we do not have to look into each others’ eyes. We set our meeting rooms like stages so we only have to look at one person, and that a public mask. We start with conversations around the meal and just when they might be getting good, we interrupt and call attention to what matters little. We have no intention to mine the jewels from out of our minds and hearts. We make sterile and remove all life from what is possible for us. Despite it, some people do manage to find each other, turn to one another, and get something done. What could we do if we consciously chose to meet?
