Sometimes seems as if I’m
the only person on this planet
without a cell phone…
even waiting in food bank line,
buzz or weird ring songs blurt out.
Personally, I can’t afford one;
secondly, who’d I call or
better yet, who’d call me?
Mostly send and receive emails
from family, friends, businesses…
thirdly, in this electronic world,
don’t people want to escape?
Don’t people want to
be free from instantaneous connection;
be free from interruption.
Electronic umbilical chords bind people:
constantly entering Face Book comments…
who doesn’t fear being lonely?
