Can someone tell me
why no one will answer their phones?
It must make a blender of
Alexander Graham Bell's grave,
seeing his great great great-granddaughter
exposing her barest necessities
to an LCD screen with
Easy Bake tokens of sweet declarations
(all the way from South Korea)
yet tensing up at the butter knife nudge
of vocal contact with the neighborhood friend.
I've written something new
and I'd really like to show you all
for like an infant,
this creature cannot text you its thoughts.
It cannot even say the word "thumb".
