Parallel Play

A generation locked in parallel play;

moving in a perfect skein.

The V-formation

of their intertwined lives

not truly lived,

now digitally defined.

I see it happening

day by day

as I walk beside the lake . . .

a pair, a trio, a quartet, still more

of friends and lovers barred from hearing

their treasured companion

eyes locked on a screen

fingers methodically scanning.

A generation locked in parallel play;

moving in a perfect skein.
