Poetry (Day 11): Pixels

 

 

Pixels

Facebook now lets us
watch video
in high definition,
as if those extra pixels
might mean we didn’t
just waste two minutes
of our life waching a cat
fall off a bed.
Twice.

Those extra pixels are supposed
to convince us that watching
our daughter’s dance recital,
and our son’s first steps,
with a wall of glass
and electronics between us
is a good idea.

We know the truth
but it doesn’t seem
to matter.
