All day long I see
people looking down at phones,
what a boring view!

Please, let me see a
whisper of what makes you tick,
your eyes, and your smile.

There are many ways
to set a trap; this one is
brilliant in concept.

What is to become
of humans, and these days I
wonder if they care?

And how would I know?
They say the window to the
soul is in the eyes –

So many eyes now
slaves to a tiny window,
captured by a screen.

Look up, please look up,
I want to connect with what
is real and human.

But do you?
