Devaluated Data

When this digital dark age passes
and smartphone screens go dead
we shall all return to vibrant life
and think upon what is said

We shall look up, toward vast horizons
recalling dimly-lit square centimeters of data
finger-scrolling memories in the afterglow.
We shall again behold the reach of sky
from the mouths of our caves and pit-houses.
We shall know the Creator as well as the Creation.
We shall communicate.

    I have shared to Facebook. As though people read things posted to Facebook. Well said.

    It’s an odd thing to recognize that one is living in a dark age, especially for those of us who are old enough to remember the height from which we have fallen. I’m also sharing this to Skynet… telescreen… I mean Facebook.

    I can’t imagine there being a time after smart phones and the like, Andrew, your words offer some hope, however!
