Facebook versus Personal Communication: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Haiku

We make time to shout/
at our walls, but won’t take time/
to break through to you.

Original alternative
We make time to shout/
out to air, but wont take time/
to connect to one.
———-
At 11:20 a.m., after seeing a friend posting their Facebook “Wall”, I wrote this (and posted it on my Facebook Wall)

Friends say
“I don’t have time to write today,
Or call
at all.”
Yet I see them writing
on their wall
and it’s frightening
to see
how we’re forgetting
our “personal we”.
