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.
