Words

by Stephanie Cressler

Head down, fingers typing,
fingers swiping, eyes captured,
mouth closed, not talking.

Communication hindered
when you rather text than talk
to the real-life human next to you,
you call friend.

When ‘how are you?’
becomes ‘how r u?’,
u mght ms the mng,
the purpose, the point of
what is being said.

Don’t live, going through the motions,
(a motion in itself),
you aren’t a mirror, don’t reflect what the world does.
You are a real-life human
with a head to think,
fingers to hold, eyes to keep contact with,
and a mouth to talk, not text.

From the real-life human next to you,

remind me of the sound of your voice.
