Between Realities

Nothing worse than watching someone,
Excited,
In the moment,
Amidst some exciting happening,

Then bamβ€”
Down to the phone,
Instantly switched,
Unresponsive,

Then back in the moment excited again!
(Apparently or feigning it?)
Seemingly present and aware once more!

Back down to the phone,
Zoned out,
Emotionally, consciously to all intents and purposes,
Dead,

Bam back to the present,
Back to phone,
Present,
Phone,
Present,
Phβ€”,
Intervals between realities shortening,
The moment has dwindled away;

Another utterly bizarre,
Eerie,
Modern-day human behaviour.

One thought on “Between Realities

  1. I think the opposite is worse, when you’re talking to someone and they’re barely responding, and then they get all excited when they look at their phone and start texting furiously. Like, they’re so dumb they can’t even modulate their facial expressions.
