POEM: these digital relationships

these digital relationships

I turn on the screen to see your smile
sometimes a smile is what I need most

and I know yours will be there
constant in a way few things are these days

as tired as I am of digital relationships
I’m making an exception in your case

I don’t know what you sound like or how
you make the air move when you walk into a room

but you were kind to me once
when I had no expectation of kindness
