Virtually relevant

Me and you

Um What?

What’d you say?

No really I’m listening

One more….

Word, life, level, does it matter?

I’m too wrapped up in virtual conversation

No No No  Itchy itchy Wifi’s iffy

Sitting at my desk twitchy

How am I to survice

Without a steady stream of empty likes

Straight faced LOLs

At my hifaluted approximations of the person I wish I was

But I am, if only there

Tweeting, tumbling, pinning it to facebook

Look it’s my boo

No that’s not me in the relationship status

I’m relegated to the inbox

Just barely a byline passing

Yeah, I’m the Monica Lewinsly of FB

But I digress

I’m the one minute warrior

Crusading clicky flicky causes

#bringbackourgirls, but who are they?

#icebucketchallenge, but what is it?

#firechallenge, what’s that for?

I don’t care

As long as I can hash tag it and move on to the next big like attracter

This has been my longest conversation since 2003

Wait what?

Aren’t you listening to me?

Is that? No? Really?

Candy crush? Bubble witch monkey?

……3 Hours later

In your virtual getaway

With virtual friends, proximally close

Across the digital divide

A few kilobytes away from relevance.
