Flashing Lights

Flashing Lights

a Poem by Raquel Swann
I’d forgotten how lonely it was

In the beginning 

Before the lights.  

The ones which flickered

Across wireless connections 

Onto flat rectangular surfaces 

In the form of words and pictures

Which express emotions

Signifying someone was there 

to hear my digital voice

And respond with compassion, 

Friendship and understanding.

It’s funny how these flashing lights 

Just have a way of

brightening up your day. 


No, it was just an app update.
