Where were you?
When my dot was the only green?
You were a yellow among the faded pinks
Some were away for less than hour,
you were away for a day!
The long silence
Since your fingers walked
Since your mind
across the ether to touch another.
by cell or text or tweet
you chose less obvious presence,
hiding among the electrons
of other channels.
tied here by duty and honor
with strings of financial dependence,
tapped out my rhythm of mind's blood,
solving some problem
of your making.
