Once upon a time

when someone was laid up

visitors would send cards

friends would deliver flowers

your buddies brought balloons

until the sick room was transformed

into a jolly place, papered in good wishes.

Now,

the wishes are all virtual

and the distraction is digital.

If only the pain was, too.
