Through my ear buds comes
Listen has the same letters
I squint at my little teal
The screen is
There are over four
Loaded on this bit
No good to me
smiles.. i have thousands of songs on my iPhone..and sometimes it's just overwhelming...and i choose silence...which i should more often i guess..ReplyDelete
I hate that too. when you forget to recharge and have to listen to the radio sometimes. and yes like Claudia said the silence might be better.ReplyDelete
batteries are the achilles heel of technology. My silence is very noisy - I can only sleep with the radionon.ReplyDelete

as silent///ha i like that.
and what good is our tech if it does not have power...that is certainly one limitation of it...a bit of silence sometimes is not a bad thing though...
Now that is a dilemma that brings clear the intimate bond between technology and human desires and needs. By the breakdown of the gadget, it becomes clear that the desire is not necessarily a desire that will bring ultimate fulfillment of what one needs to be happy. The statement about listen and silent is cool, and I like the way that that plays on language's ability to rearrange itself into different meanings, like those tricky pictures that can be a rabbit or a duck. Great poem.ReplyDelete
Oh! Biggest Pet Peeve EVER! Without my music I am souless...I even have a battery operated cassette deck when all else fails. I am not ashamed! (and not confessing my 8track either!) I need my tunes and control over when what plays! Sorry...didn't mean to get sooo worked up! ;)ReplyDelete
worse is when you can never recharge again and need a new unit...ReplyDelete
Unemployed eyes wither in winter’s white noise.
As a total music junkie, I can completely relate! Nicely done.ReplyDelete
At times I'm a technophobe but never worse than when one of my music machines is "down" - thanks so much for stopping by ...ReplyDelete
