Prayer Chain – circa 1996

I currently communicate,

“compose”

Create.

on my

Smartphone

and somehow,
sometimes,

I feel all the more Dumb for it.
So do you. Don’t deny.

Now,
The Pager.

Those. Were. The. Days. My. Friend.

Motorola
Advisor
Elite

Long-forgotten vibrations emanate from my hip
awakening latent longings for simpler times

And yet

Even.                    Then.                The Hunger.

Not just a “beeper”

its straightforward
“Call me back”
merely implied.

ALPHANUMERIC
That’s the ticket.

Even.
                Then.
                              The Hunger.

better
faster
newer

Still.
My pager never drove me to rant and rail

not like now.

Right?

Not like the phone named “Smart”.

Well.

“Sneezing?”

You won’t get it.
                      That’s OK. 

“smart” phone
won’t help.

Google?

No Boolean string will ever find that prayer request.

Sometimes good old-fashioned memories are best.
