Hugs become emotes

Meetings become facetime

Feelings are misconstrued

And recluses are made of us

Sympathy lacks company

Of a friend’s warm embrace

And our lives peel away

At the hands of social media

Not to mention our manners

And basic social skills

When we make eye contact

With our phone rather than

The one in our presence
