…and we grew flowers that bloomed
OLED petals in the last few days of january,
in time for lovers to view
a bouquet of digital memories
a fortnight into february.
When human fingers touched,
it was no longer touch
that tickled the senses,
but the NFC sensors
springing to life and connecting to facebook
in order to bring up his latest posts
and the long lost pics from
her sophomore year
spring break trip
right into the mind’s eye.
Oh, it was due time
when we upgraded to Google Ajna;
I can’t imagine what imagining
was like without the implant,
without the processing power of AWS,
where we outsourced our brain power.
And I don’t know when we lost sight
of the world dying,
or why we couldn’t hook up
some silicone device on the bees,
the trees and the coral reefs so that
they’d let us know they were ill.
Siri was always so helpful;
if only she had been in direct connection
We must not have gone far enough.
