pondering technology

turn the tv off
mute the radio, close the laptop
let the phone ring it'll go to voicemail

the tv may be widescreen,
but outside the picture's even bigger
and the resolution is perfect

let actual replace virtual when we consider reality
letters on stationery replace
email/im/tweet/text ("messaging")

communal replace the
music deep in our ears but nowhere else

and when's the last time you walked
wherever you had to go?
for most of history, we've survived without

what has in a couple generations
become ("essential")
could we, again?
