Tristan Stevens, Fifthwall


Why is it easier to engage with through my camera lens?
Are the leads and plugs important too?
Why does so much of it seem lonely?

Thoughts about the questions:

You can’t hug sand or screens
and there’s only the sound of traffic as lullaby.
Perhaps they all fled, too abruptly
even to turn off the lights, leaving only
the tainted scent that hid their humanity.
What dreadful epidemic drove them all away,
from so much wasted striving for perfection
all somehow sullied
all as lonely as a handful of sand.
