My health makes me isolated;
to be at my most functional
I have to be alone quite a lot
But when I am alone I do less;
I have to be around other people
to do things for and with them
and to get done the deeds
that will help me to live well.
Comensality is a neccesity for life.
I never know until long after the time
what the right quantity of human company
should have been to find me at my most humane.
