“Suck me dry,” I said.

phone sucks you

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.
