Out. Let. Connection.

we connect to the outside world
from inside
while we're connected
to an outlet
energized
by electricity
tired out from
life
the sun drains us
blinds us
burns us
so we wear hats
sunglasses
SPF
and carry an umbrella
to shade our squinted faces
skin
souls
from being graced by life
life
who no longer powers our souls
only gets in the way of our plans
lets us down
who's tale we only watch from a TV
laptop
movie
screen
life
who sings
a glorious song we only hear through
speakers
earphones
phones
that kill us with a power strip IV
'my way, now' mentality
humanless community
we communicate via text
email
blog
making voiceboxes pointless
useless
less
so we can be
lifeless
making a network connection
asking the net worth question
what's my house worth
my car worth
who cares about my worth
we have online friends
groups
status'
but no lifeline
no life
life
who we let wither away
while we blog about her importance
beauty
experiences
that we never actually experience
outside our world
from inside
connected to an outlet life support
only without the life
or the support
who's only
out
is to
let
life in
