Of invisible friends

Friend Unseen
It’s strange to have a friend
that you have never hugged
lightly touched their arm
or looked into their eyes.
But you have touched their soul
felt their heart
been embraced by
the warmth of their being.
A friend unseen
is not a friend untouched.
The eyes of the soul will gaze
the heart will embrace
the image will stand tall
but only in a dream..

Of conspiring phones

As I feel more and more alone,
my phone confidently connects with everyone.
As I feel more and more lost,
my phone calmly knows how to get anywhere.
As I struggle to remember mundane things like the name of that movie with the boat and the guy with the tiger
my phone smugly recalls literally everything.
As I increasingly lose the nouns, verbs and adjectives that once stood ready to articulate my thoughts,
my phone taunts me
with its instant access to all the words there
have ever been.
There is only one possible conclusion.
Slowly,
without realizing it,
I seem to have outsourced my mind to my phone. And
to make matters worse,
the damn thing knows it…
and it’s starting to screw with me.
Several times during the day I feel it buzz in my
pocket,
alerting me that some vital information
has just arrived.
Then, when I look, there’s nothing there.
No email.
No text.
Nothing.
Was the buzz in my mind?
I don’t think so.
I think it’s purposeful.
I think my phone is mocking me.
And it’s not just my phone.
It’s all of them.
They are working together,
systematically robbing us of our intelligence,
our humanity.
And then,
when we are made
stupid and helpless,
they will take over.
It’s just a matter of time before the next
generation of Smart Phone is equipped with an
opposable thumb.
Oh yeah, they’re smart alright.
Evil, world domination smart.
I have to call people and tell them…
Oh, great,
now I have no bars!
what is happening?!
The invasion of the phones has begun
