The Artifice of the Rectangle

18 Mar
Friday night not a voice or text
the infernal pocket rectangle

a virtual loneliness rears up
eleven years the couple
drift apart in real time

partly by
a pandemic and jobs
forced isolation in separate places
the dependence on digital devices
plastic screen lit un-faces
gifs and emoticons
plus gray hairs and wrinkles

the encore wasted Friday nights
dating Amazon Prime

then
a body went to seed
on a queen size
