  • Imitation of Bliss

    We are disconnected
    by our connection
    to the fast stream
    bevy of icons.
    Trickling out our hearts
    with blue thumbs,
    emoticons.

    Defined by pokes, likes and dislikes.
    A world expanded by megabytes,
    then subsequently contracted,
    by acronymic sound bites.

    We pose more
    and bond less.
    Addicted
    to the impulse
    to impress.

    And it's sad
    we've forsaken intimacy
    for this,
    technologically produced,
    imitation of bliss.

    I am always open to advice.

    How would you have line breaked?

        I like your poems -- they are honest and very well written.

            Yes. Every bit a tangible morsel. Well done poet.

              A well-written verse on the state of technological progress as it impacts our daily lives. Yet, many people have found real live companionship through pokes and tweets. The technological revolution is really just beginning. Who knows what will come next, for better or for worse. Thanks for this thought-provoking piece, Dwayne

                Very enjoyable. It is so true. How can we slow it down?

                  It is not it, but us, that needs to slow down. The defect is in the user.

                    LOVE the title... every word rings true. To the question of how do we stop this? Share your poems outside of here maybe? I just recently have because of all of your support and have asked others to try Haiku or a simple one line poem. i am amazed that folks of all ages are hungry for it.

                    thanks for this DWAYNE
                    Oh, and maybe talk to somebody at a coffee joint??

                      I have thought about that. A lady at a bookstore suggested I do a reading there.
                      I donated one to my church, they used it on a bookmark, some have asked for more.
