#2,593 This silence is cracked

This silence is cracked by
my summoning of sound
by device apps –
is caulked by BBC in-fills –
I talk to Siri & Alexa more
these days –
my directing
& instructions are met by
their online servitude –
time they will understand
me more than any other –
more than you in my past
or you in my future –
do not lie [not yet] –
I seek
evidence of my existence –
these words will fade too –
as we all will
[I hope age’s
spites destroy your hopes
with her cellulite touches]
& we’ll will retire
[so well]
