She was my 2-D lover
On my 2-D screen.
Head bobbing, online babbling, relationship dabbling.
Videos shared, and jokes, chats snapped,
cute cat pics, podcasts, drama packaged by pundits.
trolling, hysterical media pumping poison
work email after email dumping data
meeting after meeting, talk after talk
managed gym time, 3 sets per exercise, scheduled segments of productivity
purchasing convenience with one click
neatly done but still too many tasks
and no strength to apply the brakes, to look in the mirror,
because of the Abundance of Access.
Which we were never meant to have.
