#112

October 6, 2011 § 6 Comments

Drive and talk and eat and listen
To the radio with one hand tied behind your
Mobile device
Hear the traffic report – it’s going to be a rough commute:
Congestion on the information super highway
Rubbernecking – a collision
Of head to phone and
Visibility is low –
Make eye contact with no one
But the digital face in your hand
Touch nothing but your touchscreen
Speak only in text-tapped abbrevs to save time –
Time
That you could spend finger-surfing
Empty out a room of bodies
Invasion apocalypse of technology zombies
Skin and bones as piles in chairs
While thoughts reside entirely
Elsewhere
