The Cybernaut


The Cybernaut

She didn’t play well with others
she had some abnormalities
she didn’t like the real world
she believed in her own reality.

She built herself a firewall
that no one’s ever breeched
obsessive-compulsive screen addiction,
a woman very hard to reach.

She only has eyes for the avatars
she won’t even meet you halfway
she already has what she’s after
on her Apple computer’s display.

  1. Since I seem to be on a Joni Mitchell kick…. ‘When you gonna realise they’re only pretty lies. Only pretty lies, just pretty lies’ (‘The Last Time I Saw Richard’). Your poem reminding me that some things never change. We just bring them into other dimensions. ūüėČ

    1. I read up on internet addiction and it depends on the person. “Screen Addiction” is a term used in China and many other countries to describe this disorder. Who can say?
