And you have an idea
where the mass of society is stuck within technology,
not in life,
not in environment,
not there—just socially aloof,
a society prop void,
a somnambulist day to day,
and that same person,
counters with, “that idea is trite.”
as they reach for their smartphone
to update their profile
with a semi-interesting proclamation,
for all to measure.
They are lost as an ironic example,
trying to be anything but.
