POPULARITY NONTEST
(6/8/17)

I forgot
to turn on
my cell phone
today

brought it
to work

but things
were busy

so it sat
there

all day
beside me

unbeknowingly
inert

I finally
noticed
the black screen
when getting ready
to go home

so I hit
the power
button

waited
for the software
to cycle through
to ON

no calls

no texts

for someone
who practices
isolation
I seem
to have perfected
my art

I may
leave the phone
at home

OFF

from now
on

a seldomly used

one way device

as am
I
