Hermit crabs are social creatures, but crabby.

A cure for loneliness is solitude.
The lonely are self-absorbed
by anything they see.

A hermit in the commons
is a failure–
A disgrace to all hermits–
A social caterpillar who
is a food critic to plastic leafs.

Trying to control influence
is like trying to control weather.
One can only truly control

Either utilize a wardrobe,
and face the elements;
Adjust the thermostat,
and stay indoors;
Or handpick the climate,
and relearn doing both.
