#2,373 It Is Not

Mike Bell/ April 6, 2022/ www.mikebellpoems.com/ 0 comments

It is not speaking to someone
without needing a device –
is not being
[constantly] with-
in touch & less frowned upon
by my kids –
We connect as if
sewn at our hips –
so laugh at
[& days of old memory
prods] –
Skin’ll alter over time
[we are all fattening] –
let me sleep without a phone
& less to know about others –
I recall a glorious time before
our now-wireless connection
wefted slick [on social looms]
