The Phone Machine War and Girls

Listen to audio poem here

So take that, you

Phone in your hand

That, that one thing of high demand

Take it, and rescue yourself

 

Didn’t you hear

That thing has no fear

It will eat you, eat you alive

Flesh out your ears

 

And toss out

Thoughts

That you control it

If that ain’t real— Not so

 

But bring it close

And tell yourself—

I am, I can

Recognize the truth, the deceptions it hides

This day this time

It’s way, way too easily led blind

 

But what you are

Is

What you become

Is

Alive, inside

You are not that mute square

Of inorganic chip

Gluing its addictions

To your tiny fingertip

 

Instead pull from what ground

You grew

Family, faith and love

Diligent life and trust

To these things

Forever, sisters, do pledge
