homo technologicus autisticus

mr. and mrs. gadget:
are you harried
or just married?

sitting at a table for two together
alone by yourselves
along with thousands
of your closest e-friends
with whom you maintain
friendl-e relations...
or is it business?
or just busyness...

are you numb?
out of your minds
since they've dropped out
and down, down
and out, to your thumbs,
which dance deftly
over digital displays,
while your eyes---
sole windows to your souls---
glaze over?

game over.
'can i take your order?'
time for you
to face the face facing you
at that table for two.
