We Are Connected

I sit and wait for his face to appear on my tiny rectangular box

I contemplate the wondrous invention of the telephone

And the advances that have made it possible for me to sit at my office desk

And observe another human being on that little screen

We are connected via a live broadcast

As the audio travels across the miles

And through a slim tube into a miniature headpiece

A perfect collaboration between sound and vision

As the image of his face appears in full technicolour on my tiny screen

Each megapixel tells a story as my eyes scan the screen

And absorb the information with eager anticipation

We have made a link between a magical sphere

And we are connected
