Heads down
walking along the street.
Don’t acknowledge
anyone that they meet.
The thought of
a personal connection
is not enough
to grab their attention.
Not enough
hours in the day
to be on
social media
and have their say.
Imaginary friends
say something funny
or put up snaps
of someplace sunny.
For them
the real world
does not exist
it is just a place
they need to subsist.
All they need
is here on a screen.
Are we being
programmed by machines?
