REACH OUT
(8/10/15)


there
was a time
when we'd need
to touch flesh

to write
a letter

at least
to dial
a rotary phone

to make
some human
contact

at least
those methods
seemed
more definite

a connection
was made

now
we can go
worldwide
in seconds
with a press
of a virtual
button

carry on
conversations
with thousands
instead
of the debilitating
one on one

still
we pass
each other
in public

peering expectantly
into
opposite eyes

feeling
as if we really
know no one

looking
back down
to our phones

to our
friends

moving on
