As I touch you

Your oblong face sparkles

At the touch of my thumb

Too aged for all my fingers

Your flat frame to fondle

You patiently wait for my next cuddle

Like a lion stalking its prey

Knowing one gaffe could be fatal

Sending me to wrong hunting ground

Exiling me to territories hostile


You arrived after paying your dowry

Empowering me to keenly slave

For half-truths and lies they sell

You cruelly owning me

I freely yielding to your heartless power

Never smiling back, nor grieve

Nor spit, nor eat, burp, flatulate


At daybreak

Lying next to me

My spouse caresses your sibling

Awakened by your tedious cries

Claiming our attention

Well before our morning salutations

Or habitual kisses

Our devotion to you now whole


The sole demand for your submission

That we jolt you every now and then

And pay your provider, to keep you afloat

To keep us glued to your blank, hairless, toothless face

Now worshipped by millions

Fornicating with you in public

Buses, trains, cabs, banks, streets

Planes, schools, toilets, libraries, parks


With embedded ears

Listening to my commands

Dutifully complying

When out of juice or get lost

How we suffer painful withdrawals

Quaking with ire, declaring brazenly

My lover’s better ‘n yours


Till the next generation of lovers

Our loyalty and devotion stay flawless

I am human, you are not

You’re amassed, I evolved

The created ruling the maker

Your soullessness eroding my humanity

You are the cell phone

Trumping cells that built my form


Waiting for the next generation

Of your kinsfolk, no more held

But worn in place of specs

Fused into our mien

Where a virtual reality will

Be served from eye to brain

Wired ears to trap your sounds

Freeze my essence, till death do us part
