WEATHER OR NOT
(11/3/19)


my
smart phone
is connected
to very
little

if I
do not get
a phone
call

a text

the only
thing
that I see
on a regular
basis

is a
cloud

a white
puffy
electronic indicator
that the
temperature

or perhaps
the forecast
has changed

this occurs
much more
often
than any human
contact

in fact
peopled
communications
run a distant
third
behind software
updates

maybe
I should simply
lose
the phone

buy a
thermometer

a barometer

an anemometer

and let
my world
talk to me
through
arrows

gauges

and mercury
levels

no battery
chargers

no new
versions
needed

if you
ever
have anything
to tell me

just
do
a little
rain dance

when the
winds shifts
to your
direction

I'll know
that it
is you
