Unable to Connect

I dropped my phone—
well— more like threw
it to the pavement—
by accident.

I can’t check email,
no more blinky text alerts,
it doesn’t chime or sing
when someone calls—

not that anyone called
besides scammers and salesmen.
I am untethered
from the 21st century,

floating away, high above the country,
finally seeing the big picture.

    I quite like this one, it amplifies the modern isolation through technology.

  2. JeanMarie says:

    Love the throw line.

  3. Lisa Tomey says:

    by accident… says a lot. Nicely done.

  4. Saying much in the things you leave out, and a great last line, that’s a mark of a great Poem! This is a great poem indeed …
