Plugged Out

My body has not moved for millennia.
My eyes stare blankly forward.
Half of me is frozen.
The other burns intensely.
My fingers periodically twitch.
Nothing comes of it.
I see things no one else does.
I miss things everyone else doesn’t.
Sound pulses through my ears.
Sometimes I forget it’s there.
Some people come.
Mostly they go.
I am plugged in.
I am tuned out.
