Canto CXVIII

Even the internet slows down for the holiday,
as families reacquaint themselves to how
the eyes add something to what our tongues say,

and even tongues can startle when allowed
to ping against enamel’s coffee stains,
the fingers drum the table’s edges, cowed

and cut off from their hotline to the brain.

    I like the sentiment. We do not communicate enough face to face and a whole generation is violent and frustrated because they have insufficient language skills to express their feelings.
