Asking jeeves to show you the door.

  1. I don't really treat the modern day as if it is any different because embracing the new helps develop a person. There are some days where I don't like to be around technology, but those days are few in between when I'm writing.

  2. What a wonderful rant on technology. and I so wish you would put it on soundcloud :-) I love the tools though.. and such a great way to meet people from all around the world.

  3. very clever, very witty, i enjoyed very much

    Have a nice Tuesday
    much love...

  4. Thanks for introoducing me to this album, these artists. The songs remind me of early Laurie Anderson, so I like them a lot--at least the first two I listened to. So I'd like to hear how you would read/chant your own poem. Which reads like a Becket play! No surprise. But, it has a happier ending, suggesting less half-life and more survival. Bravo.

  5. TB's poem made me smile, and Kenia.. yours touches that painful, poignant spot of loneliness that so much reaching out on social media will never fill.

    KC is wondering if the other person's silence becomes our own after some time.

    Since my initials are also KC, your lines feel like they could have been taken from my own thoughts.

  6. As much as technology can be a form of is also in some ways a limitation. Love how you captured that here Kenia. :-)

  7. I love the techno-cacophony of the first poem! Really nicely rendered.

  8. You two play off of one another very well. I alwYs love coming her!!!!😎😎

  9. Such a beautiful back and forth! Great stuff!

  10. I love this brilliant thing!

  11. The first made me smile and the second one drew me in and made me see myself a bit too.
