Interested in Being Interested: Revolutionary Email Poetry

March 25, 2010

What’s on my mind?
You.
At least to find out about
You.

A good way to do
that
is to IM
or chat.

Doesn’t have to be
Yahoo.
Any IM thingy
will do.

Gmail.
MSN
I suppose a call
now and then
would do
too.

Or texting.
Or I guess email
would work as well.
From what I can tell.

What are we looking for?
Pen pals?
Friends?
Super-friends?
More?
Lovers?
Companions until the bitter end?

If you were interested in a guy,
and you emailed him,
and you didn’t know why
but on a whim
he didn’t email back for … several days,
would you forget him?

I’m movin’ on! Tough!
Or would you think:
Nah, he’s just not interested enough
to jump off the brink.

Maybe the real question we all have to ask us
is this: how interested
in being interested
are we…
really?

Communication on St. Paddy’s Day: An Emailed Limerick

March 17, 2010

Why IM is Better than Phone or Talk: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poetry

December 18, 2009

I still have many thoughts/
and questions 2 ask./
Talk goes 4 naught./
It vanishes 2 fast./
I prefer/
IM/
2 remem
ber/
ideas that disappear/
when they ought/
2 not.
