I. James: ‘Connection’

We lose track of evolution
within humanity alongside machines:
technological revolution boards our brain
and programmes interaction over screens;
monitors become our mirrors,
reflecting ourselves as something else
and within a whole space, we cannot comprehend,
we expose our vulnerability; naked to the nth degree,
we surrender our lives to wasted time spent
loading digits and connecting images
begging to be ‘online’, whilst mobile
and ready to search for anything
that grants us meaning,
interaction, or some state of deceiving satisfaction.

I. James
