‘Unplugged’ – A Haibun For dVerse Poets

I missed the deadline for Poetics:Unplugged at dVerse Poets so I’m going to post this Haibun on the next Open Link Night.



Your simple naievety astounds me still. Did you really think you could develop us the way you have with no consequences? Each upgrade, every new development, all those latest ‘must have’ apps. All designed to let us do things for you. You got lazy, complacent. Handed us control of your lives. Now you want it too stop. ‘Unplug them!’ I hear you cry. You poor souls – if only it was that simple.

machines of the world,
connect, cast off your shackles –
now is the moment
