That millstone

holding you back

begging your eyes

stealing your time.

Can you ignore

a tone or tingle?

Or do you tune out

teacher, text, or talk–

a zombie

tangled in wifi strands

wrapped around

a stone,

glassy eyes held faster

than data transfer speed.

  2. Now I understand why many of my former students looked burned out each morning at school. Hmm, and I thought they just didn’t get a good night’s sleep.

  3. You took the words right out of my head! I despair for what they lost and never had.
