The Beach is for Sissies

digital-media

Beep, beep,

Beep, buzz.

His mind is alert

Information driving into his mind with every turn.

A message on Facebook.  A new friend?

Perhaps old?

Has he ever seen this person before?

Whatsapp needs attention.

Cute.

A dog can swim while biting a frisbee.

Snapchatting faces, one blurring into the next.

Bombarded by messages.

Silence?

Not a moment.

People call out

Scream through clogged air waves.

Calling, connecting.

Still, somehow,

He’s never felt so alone.
