Magpie 105: Collision

image: epic mahoney

The future and history crash
in a flat lined hub of fiber optic nowhere.
The long gone party-lines,
core black telephones decried
 iconic -pink princes phones
that came to link transient families,
translucent friends, truncated business
associates and cordial customers
in a national dialogue.

Colorful language went silent—
we pause to reflect
we pause to listen to what has become
a chorus of tapping finger tips
chipping finger nails
but void of human voice
of human color.

Our mind is left to add warmth
and pictures to text
and try to find the humanity
in the middle of everywhere.

Michael A. Wells
