love on the web

May sound silly, but it’s true
he can fall for me or you
with nothing in between
but miles of wires

“Can’t happen” says my wife
needs to be more IN YOUR LIFE
takes more than words and pics
to light those fires

It’s different in these days
connections happen other ways
and though we’ve never met
we bare by byte

after byte
after bite

crunch, chew
swallow
expectorate

If we’re lucky in the end
there’s some joy when hitting “send”
but skin on skin is lacking;
words are trite

some day we’ve got to touch
is that really asking much?
being “social” utilizes
other senses

for in knowing – being known
head and heart don’t stand alone
takes some tactile tactics
to break down all fences.
