Agatha – 2 – “Dispersion”

Posted in Agatha at 11:55 pm by Matt

Distant communication.
Connect without intention.
All lives entwined together
Makes bonds and bruises shallow.

When peers are so close –
Words on a screen, voice in a box –
Sight and touch are replaced by synthetics.
Where does a mother fit into this world of perpetual contact?
Digitally forsaken, the elders are shunned and forgotten.

They lie to each other,
When they speak with phantom mouths.
They lie to each other,
With a paucity of thought.
They lie to each other,
By denying absence.
They lie to each other,
In this disconnected life.
They lie to each other,
When they speak with phantom mouths.
They lie to each other,
With a paucity of thought.
They lie to each other,
By denying absence.
They lie to each other,
In this disconnection.
