Poetry Friday -- 21st Century Thinking
by Bill Holm
Earbud--a tiny marble sheathed in foam
to wear like an interior earring so you
can enjoy private noises wherever you go,
protected from any sudden silence.
(the rest of the poem is here)
This poem got me thinking about all of the 21st Century gadgets we can't live without, but which create barriers that separate us from other real, live human beings.
The round up this week is at Allegro.
