Cell phone

When you could be together, with phone in hand, you were apart. Now, with phone in hand, though apart, you remain together. You were apart in togetherness, aloof in presence; now, in separation, in absence, you are together. Wherein, then, lies socialisation? If not eye to eye, where lips may be read, expressions felt, without distraction, then your phone is sufficient. Regret is futile if at one time that which you now regret is exactly what you wanted then. Social distancing – being next to one another in the same room with your face in your phone. Think about it.
