while you play on iPad

Jeanne in iMovie by Jeanne

while you play on iPad

I reach across the table
to touch your arm
for you are lost in the iPad screen again.

your head lowered to the partner
who blinks and flashes alerts

while I wait in vain
for eye to eye contact
the kind that shows my soul

it sings your song
beats your rhythm
cherishes your words
knows your thoughts
warms at your touch

but you are apart in

poking the iPad
cruising the lane
electric data
going in and out…

I’ll wait for the data
you want to share
when you want
how you want
likely with lavender!
