Smartphone

Sit together at a table
 a million miles apart
It’s the promise of connectivity that isolates

Observe all the wonders of the world
 through a hand-held screen
Documentation supersedes any experience

Trade memories for data
 on disposable circuits
Collect evidential records for no reminiscence

Conduct your own sad, private,
 little, reality shows
Applauded by an imagined world-wide audience

Trapped in a world contained in
 the palm of your hand
Your own cage, your cell, in this prison of subservience
