They would tell you they prefer solitude

working from dawn to dusk 

hard work,  back breaking work 


most of them stay away from phones,

they communicate with simple  head nods

an occasional wave 


When social rules require them to be around others

they go to weddings, funerals, etc 

but they do so grudgingly 


There they gather in groups,

circles outside of churches and funeral homes

they share a handshake, but few words


keeping to themselves 

protecting each other's privacy 

sharing little
