What is this world of messaging|
in which people type on keys,
uploading thoughts to strangers
via keyboards on their knees.
Perhaps it's like the comic strip
of that man perched on a rock
relaying thoughts across the sea;
replies taking weeks to dock.
Each keyboard views the world
through a different pair of eyes;
many different times and places,
many feet a different size.
Some viewpoints may be tricky
many failing to understand
that one person plays an oboe
others trumpet in a band.
Now each trumpet tells a story
with a different tone and pitch
different sounds to oboes
each voice a different niche.

I think I'll have a lazy day. There's a "tidy up" interview with an agency tomorrow.
