I would bleed tech

I’m afraid that if you cut me

I would bleed tech

It’s not a rational fear

I could always bury myself

Away from the signal

Only on the weekends

But I wouldn’t want to

Spend too much time

Away from the blue lights

Because I am an addict.

How can we not be with

The world and the world’s

Fascinating stories

In our hands at all hours and places

The slow scroll

So satisfying to the brain.

All these humans

Have so much to say

And they feel so deeply

And they shine so brightly

But then there’s the caveat:

They’re all flat

And I’m not.
