This piece is inspired by the poem ‘Together’ by Rupi Kaur. The poem is about the irony of us all feeling lonely at the same time. The piece tries to capture those feelings of isolation that we all feel, knowing
that each person who listens to this understands those feelings too. Sometimes knowing just knowing other people have those feelings too is enough.
