romance in the time of mobile broadband pt1

you are now connected at 4mbps.
heart beats at 4beats per second.

connecting for…
social networks
for social interaction.

names. nicknames. pseudonyms
all over the screen.

outbox. inbox.
feelings box.
boxed and botched.

attracted to an idea
a person living inside my computer screen

in my inbox.

are you sure you want to replace this file?

i’m forgetting about you.
you with the flesh
and the warm blood.
and the beating heart.

this signal is poor.
i’ve been disconnected.

we’re disconnected.
