Read My Words

by thom amundsen

social media

Please, let’s not forget

we used to do this all the time

We’d speak and listen

look into each other’s eyes.

Recognize inflections,

by the tension in your shoulders,

the manner by which your hands relax;

Listen to my words,

and help me let go of the constraints,

social media,

perhaps the devil’s playground.

Know that what I really feel

cannot be interpreted in text,

yet, if you think about what is real

then the next time you’ll better deal

with the reality of who we are,

that intelligent human being thing.

We can still cry –

avatars try with great compassion,

especially the ones that move.

In the meantime,

let’s not forget

our words are what we truly believe.

Read my words.
