Online, off line


Powered webby networks

pipe their on-line call.

Foiled blondes change status

for friends on Facebook wall.

Update, update!


Pen-palling twenty twelve

with ghostly virtual faces,

celebrity found on-line,

heads in many places.

Update, update!


I-phone, you phone all,

texting triviality,

birdlike twitter posts

mock conviviality.

Update, update!


Coffee conversations,

taking time to sit,

animated faces,

soul lights lit,

feel great, feel great!
