Production quick, Consumption quick,
No pens that write. Only mouse-clicks
Upon the faces
To boundless places
Where mind gets sick and can’t be fixed.

Then you say, “It’s hard, I’m lazy.
You want me to read?! You’re crazy!”
But I’m halfway through.
You’re impatience proves
How screens serve as mindless grazing.

Gone are Carson’s sweet-sounding birds.
Gone are Poe’s plump poetic words.
Terrific turned to
Terror as thoughts flew
Away in hopeless, homeless herds.
