wire talk

we send notes over wires all day
sometimes the notes dash through the air
and phew we can read them from our palm

our pockets buzz with new notes
sometimes the notes are from strangers
who want us to give them money for who knows what

remember the fax?
how magical that a note could teleport like that

it’s nice when we can send one note to many people
except for when we do it by accident
that video of cats falling off tables was not for you

i always sign my notes with my name or my initials
i dont even know why i sign the notes at all
the machine says they’re from me

it’s nice to be able to ignore notes when i want
although that feels weird
you wouldn’t do that in person
