Facebook Brain

cell phone in the morning
soon as I open my eyes
gotta check that facebook
twitter
google
instagram

tablet at breakfast
to read the news
to read the latest gossip
in magazines
on the net
and again, facebook

lunch time already
gotta log in
share a pic of my lunch
drink
dessert
and oh, check facebook

after work, finally
gotta drive home
better check the traffic
on my phone
check if my friends
are out of work too
better see their status
on facebook

Yes, home!
turn on the computer
skype a little bit
print out a recipe
take a pic
look, I cooked dinner
what did everyone else make?
I wonder if they posted
their dinner
on facebook?

so tired
time for bed
but i wonder who’s still
on facebook
I’ll just take a little peek
and check…

Too Bad For Me

It’s been so long
These words stuck
In the crevices of nothingness
And I couldn’t reach them
Nor pry them out
Much as I tried
I strained
And broke a neuron
And lost what could have been
The greatest words
Ever written
Too bad
No luck for me
I’ll just get back
To my coffee…

Alphabet Poetry Series: “E is for E-Mail”

It used to be so gratifying
to hear that ding
I always had the volume up
so I wouldn’t miss a thing

“Ding! You’ve got mail!”

I felt so important
that someone sent me an email
I’d rush to my computer
like it was the Holy Grail

“Ding! You’ve got mail!”

After school it was
the first thing I’d go see
The sound of the modem connecting
was happy music to me

(Notification sound)

Now there’s only a sound
and it happens every minute
I’ve learned to wait a while
and choose to ignore it

(Notification sound)

I’m not that important
just a bunch of junk mail
I miss the days when people
used to use Postal Mail

Plus and Post

I’m running late on this whole PAD thing.  Too many reasons to list.  So I will be playing catch up the rest of the week.  Wish me luck.

PLUS

One plus one
and that was fun

Then Love became flesh…

One plus one equals three
and the more, the merrier, you see

Then Love became flesh
again…

One plus one equals four
and life’s full of adventures galore

Then Love became flesh
once more…

One plus one equals five
Love around here really thrives!

POST

What do you mean you sent me a post?
Did you publish a blog?
Write an article for an online news?
I haven’t heard from you in ages!
What do you mean you sent me a post?

Mail? What mail?
I was just on the computer earlier today.
My inbox was full of spam.
I didn’t see your name.
Mail? What mail?

A “real” letter sent to me?!
Handwritten on paper with pen and ink?!
Stamped and sealed with a kiss?!
I didn’t know those still existed!
A REAL letter sent to me!

O happy day
I got a post
The mailman
is on his way
I got a post
from my friend
In reply
a card, I’ll send
– the non-electronic kind
of course. (The End.)
